COVID-19

Posted: April 22, 2020

In these uncertain times, there are some certainties.

One is the amazing way our medical professionals have risked their health and safety to take care of others. Another is the remarkable and proud way the members of our city have come together to protect those who are at greatest risk from this virus.

CMOM is doing its part. Our website now features educational activities developed by our executive director, Dr. Stewart Burgess, to continue children’s learning lives while quarantined. Each activity gives parents fun ways to engage their children while detailing the benefits the child receives by participating.

It doesn’t stop there. In partnership with the Salvation Army, CMOM learning activities are being distributed to families throughout our city who might not otherwise gain access to them.

Did you know?

  • Memberships, ticket sales, and donations fund exhibit updates and staff salaries
  • Your contributions to CMOM fund a wide range of outreach efforts
  • St. Jude patients get free admission and a special gift from the museum staff
  • CMOM hosts Make-A-Wish reveal parties at no charge
  • CMOM educators bring museum-quality activities to schools in targeted zip codes throughout the city
  • Your donor and membership dollars do more than just give you access to the museum.

Now, more than ever, we need your support to help us continue to build on what you have already helped us achieve.

From your heart…
