One lucky child will be named our CEO for the day.

Make play for ALL a reality: please consider raising your paddle during a special appeal at the end of our live auction to support our “Mobility for All Abilities” initiative. With your help, we will raise our goal of $15,000.

For some families finding a safe and inclusive place to play is no simple task. Over the next year, TCMU is moving from merely accessible to truly welcoming of children with all abilities by making weighted vests, noise-cancelling headphones, adaptable tricycles, a sensory map, and Braille signage available at the museum. We need your help to add a wheelchair lift to Bib’s World, our newest outdoor exhibit, making the 2nd story of the play structure accessible for all museum guests.
