Can You Help This Family Treasure?

We are a hands-on discovery center dedicated to stimulating curiosity and awareness in the areas of science, technology, history and culture.

How are we going to use the funds raised?

We call on the community & businesses to Help Build The New Children’s Museum. We have been in existence for over fifteen years and are in need of upgrades to continue to be an award winning, hands-on educational discovery center for families and visitors of Atlantic County!

Local building trades are on stand-by ready to donate their time & skill BUT the race is on to raise the needed funds to retrofit the 9,000 square foot facility. The funding we are seeking will go towards the following:

  • Plumbing & Electrical
  • Drywall, Carpentry, Flooring
  • Heating & Air Conditioning
  • Architectural Plans & Permits
  • Maintenance
  • Administrative

Your financial support is greatly appreciated and is tax deductible as allowed by law. The Jersey Shore Children’s Museum is a 501 (c)3 non-profit facility. EIN: 22-3532740

How does our organization help the community as a whole?

The Museum celebrates and encourages children’s imagination thus promoting the power of play as the cornerstone of learning. Each exhibit was developed using the state’s science core curriculum standards and each encourages children to make connections to their community as they dress up to be doctors, mail carriers, news anchors or weather forecasters-just to name a few. Children and their parents spend hours learning and exploring together.

Our programs and exhibits encourage children (of all ages) to explore the world around them by providing an environment that stimulates creativity, imagination, and learning through interactive play.
