Mississippi Children's Museum

Inspiring Hope

The mission of the Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM) is to create unparalleled experiences to inspire excellence and a lifelong joy of learning. The museum accomplishes this through programs focused on literacy, the arts, science, health and nutrition—the keys to helping our children mature into healthy and productive adult learners.  Today, in the midst of this challenging time, we ask you to join us in Inspiring Hope for MCM, our community and beyond.

We are continuously creating inspiring virtual content through our #MCMatHome initiative and have reopened to inspire face-to-face again.

However, in order to ensure a safe environment for all guests, our daily capacity is limited. For a non-profit who relies on a steady stream of visitors, a reduction in guests with the added cost of additional cleaning protocols has created a challenge for us. Would you consider a gift to help us continue to maintain the museum and provide an inspiring experience to all our guest?

Even a small gift allows us to purchase the increased supplies and support the staff necessary for a Safe, Clean, Fun! reopening! If you have the means, please give today.

However, if your family finds itself in a challenging financial situation at this time, please consider our online resources our gift to you.

All of us at MCM thank you and can’t wait to see you in person soon!
