Our mission is to cultivate a lifelong love of learning through hands-on, minds-on experiences that celebrate curiosity, connect families and promote a sense of unity within our community.
Chico Children's Museum is in the developmental/fundraising stage. We are members of the Association of Children's Museums and are in partnership with North Valley Community Foundation. NVCF is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), and tax-deductible donations to CCM go through NVCF's Chico Children’s Museum Fund.
Chico Children's Museum follows the model of hundreds of successful children's museums, both nationally and internationally, while incorporating the incredible artistic talent found locally in Chico, to bring the museum alive.
As we grow and expand, our vision is to offer museum scholarships to underprivileged children, giving them access to discounted/free admission, programs and classes at the museum throughout the year. CCM will be uniquely conducive to the necessities of children with special needs, and has a pointed focus on being a place where EVERYONE can safely come enjoy the magic.
We can’t wait to open our doors and invite you into a magical wonderland of play.
