There’s MORE TO EXPLORE at the Muncie Children’s Museum in 2023!
For the first time in 25 years, the Muncie Children’s Museum has embarked on an exciting fundraising campaign to reinvigorate this long time staple in Muncie, Indiana. Since 1977, the Muncie Children’s Museum has provided fun educational and interactive entertainment for children of all ages with numerous unique play areas. We are so grateful for our wonderful community and are excited to announce we’ve already raised over $2.6 million! Check out the renderings of our new model train layout and water table coming mid-summer/early fall 2023 to the MCM!
We are still seeking donations of any size to help us meet our goal! You can help us reach our goal of $3 million and play a part in creating new educational and fun areas kids can enjoy for years to come. For additional information on future exhibit changes or to help support the More to Explore Campaign, please visit http://moretoexplore.net

We’ve developed 4 different videos for you! As you follow along, you will encounter 3 different activities that ask you to think deeply about the impact that music has on our brains, our minds, our hearts, and even the world around us. If you’re inspired enough to create your own artwork, share it on our Facebook page! Find the activities on our youtube channel at The Muncie Children’s Museum!
In keeping with current requirements for Indiana schools, the Muncie Children’s Museum will continue to require masks for visitors age 8 and over for the safety of our visitors and staff. We will evaluate our mask requirement on a monthly basis.
