Special Thanks to over 70 volunteers that helped the Jersey Shore Children’s Museum on Saturday, December 28, 2013. The event coordinator of ‘Life in Color’ heard of our need to raise over $50,000 to secure a new home and offered their assistance. The JSCM partnered with the National Concession Crew as we worked all food/beverage stations, beer garden stations, ticket area, coat check area, food cooking area and more. It was truly a magical night when over 70 strangers come together to help the same cause. IN ONE NIGHT…the JSCM raised over $10,000.00
We cannot thank our volunteers, museum staff and families, and board members enough for your dedication!

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – The Jersey Shore Children’s Museum is preparing for its grand opening at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5 at their temporary location in the Hamilton Mall. Museum officers and supporters were on hand Tuesday evening Oct. 2 at the location, located on the upper level of the mall near Sears, to celebrate the completion of the exhibits.
The facility had been a longtime tenant at the Shore Mall until it was forced to close due to the demolition of the shopping center. Officials of Hamilton Mall stepped in to provide space inside the mall until a permanent location in the building behind the mall, is completed.
“We need about $50,000 to prepare the site for occupancy,” stated President Matt Gilliano. “Local labor unions have offered apprentices to help prepare the interior of the 9,000 sq. ft. facility. The mall has been very cooperative; now we just need the community to rally behind us with financial commitments.”
He added that the Mays Landing Merchants Association has already donated $1000. He also praised the acting director, Mari Dattolo for her dedication calling her efforts “phenomenal”.
The museum will hold a soft opening on Wednesday and Thursday for families of supporters. It will open to the public on Saturday at 10 a.m. and will remain open until 6 p.m. More information can be found on the organization’s Facebook page at facebook.com/jerseyshorechildrensmuseum.
One of the museum’s original founders, Chuck Gunther of Egg Harbor Township was on hand for the festivities. “We could be there in a year,” he said, referring to the permanent facility. “We have all kinds of dreams for what the museum will offer.”

“We’re going to be bigger and better than ever before,” says Matt Gilliano President of the Children’s Museum.
When the Shore Mall’s impending closing shut out the Jersey Shore Children’s Museum last year, Matthew Gilliano felt in his gut the museum’s closure would be short lived. Read More
