The Children’s Museum is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that relies on ticket sales, memberships, birthday parties and other sources to operate. This pandemic has put a great financial strain on especially children's museums and cancelled our busiest field trip season, making the impact all the more severe. It has also impacted our fundraising events and put a temporary hold on our summer camp programs.

We have taken immediate steps to put the organization in the best position to be able to re-open by incorporating a contactless ticketing system and timed play sessions with cleaning breaks before and after each. Things will be a little different but we cannot wait to see everyone’s smiling faces again. We ask for your continued support.

If you’re able, please help us keep the lights on. We remain hopeful that together we can continue our mission for the children and families of Southwest Louisiana for many more years to come. We will all get through this…TOGETHER!

Thank You to Our Annual Supporters!
