Children’s Museum of Greater Fall River

Our Mission

The mission of the Children’s Museum is to provide an environment that encourages and inspires a love for the learning process while strengthening family, education, and social bonds. In its unique environment, children actively make connections among ideas, people and cultures. Encompassing the broad themes of community, family, and creativity, the museum encourages children to define their role in contribution to society at large while supporting every parents’ effort to be the best parent they could be.

Our Goals

To help children understand and enjoy the world in which they live, we offer a wide variety of interactive exhibits that respond to children’s diverse educational needs.

The exhibits allow the nurturing of their cognitive development, and celebrate their role in our lives, and they allow for a creative center for “hands-on” learning. The learning is taught through permanent and changing exhibits that stimulate intellectual curiosity, as well as exploration in the areas of math, science, technology, the arts and humanities. All while fostering the development of problem-solving skills and creativity, to support public and private education systems by providing enriching interactive learning experiences that are consistent with specific curriculum areas. We offer educational programs that complement exhibit themes and experiences, isolate content areas for facilitated interactions, and meet the needs of specific constituencies, to serve the needs of children, families and schools as a center for learning and discovery, to serve as a resource for parents, educators and all who seek to enrich the lives of children, and to develop partnerships between public and private sectors, including businesses, industry, and educational institutions.

Through all of this, we facilitate learning and stimulate intellectual curiosity in young people.
