Description


The Museum offers hands-on, interactive exploratory learning opportunities that support social, emotional and cognitive development for children ages 1-12 years. It is a wholesome, secure, child-centered environment where children can discover, explore and imagine each at their natural pace. This non-competitive, nurturing environment helps children build self esteem and supports a sense of belonging. Exhibits and activities encourage adult-child interaction, and it is common to see inter-generational activates going on with three and four generations working together. The Museum is free of stigmas sometimes associated with education, social service or government agencies. The lack of stigma and inexpensive admission make it possible to reach a very broad swath of Snohomish County's diverse community. For this first year in its new facility, Imagine Children's Museum expected approximately 70,000 clients; but the Museum served more than 150,000 in their first year, including children, their families, relatives, friends, school groups, preschools, daycare clients and tourists. Word of mouth advertising helps draw larger and larger numbers of visitors/clients. Imagine Children's Museum has been recognized for our quality in programming, and our excellence in community partnerships. We were awarded "The Best Museum for Kids" by Seattle Magazine. This was a huge honor for us as it was an Editor's Choice award and unsolicited.
