Our vision is to cultivate a lifelong love of learning through hands-on, minds-on experiences that celebrate curiosity, connect families and cultivate a sense of unity within our community. Our mission: to learn and connect through play.
Chico Children’s Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (FEIN: #810837117). CCM originally developed under the umbrella of North Valley Community Foundation. Now, your tax-deductible donations can be made directly to Chico Children’s Museum. Please contact Executive Director Leslie Amani for information at 530-809-1492, extension 10. Chico Children’s Museum is an active member of the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) and follows the best practices 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, we want to offer museum scholarships to underprivileged children, giving them access to discounted/free admission, programs and classes at the museum throughout the year. CCM is conducive to the needs of all children and has a pointed focus on being a place where EVERYONE can safely come enjoy interactive play.
