Sometimes it takes more than an imagination to fly. Sometimes it takes real wings.

CMOM takes outreach seriously.

Through the support of donations, we are providing free access to underserved children and families.

The need for additional educational access is soaring. Please help us provide more opportunities for children to visit the museum, engage in playful learning, and visualize their future. The sky’s the limit.

Together we can help bring their future into focus. Your generous donation will make all the difference in a child’s life. It’s easy. It’s tax-deductible. It’s important.

Donate here to support educational access in our community.


Donors like you are a very important part of our mission.

Why donate? Did you know that the museum receives no government or taxpayer funding?

Since opening in 1990, the museum has become an essential community cultural institution impacting more than 260,000 visitors annually. Additionally, we subsidize group visits, under-resourced families and any campus expansion and exhibit upgrade required to meet our mission of creating learning experiences in a fun environment.

While we make wise use of dollars received through admissions and membership fees, we rely on the generosity of donations of all sizes to make a meaningful impact and meet our mission.

Would you partner with us in helping your children and the children of our community develop their future story by making a donation online?
