Mission, Vision & Values
Boston Children's Museum engages children and families in joyful discovery experiences that instill an appreciation of our world, develop foundational skills, and spark a lifelong love of learning.
Boston Children's Museum's vision is to be a welcoming, imaginative, child–centered learning environment that supports diverse families in nurturing their children's creativity and curiosity. We promote the healthy development of all children so that they will fulfill their potential and contribute to our collective wellbeing and future prosperity.
We believe in the intrinsic value of play and provide opportunities for experiential learning, and multisensory, object-based exploration.
We connect children and families to transformational experiences and ideas in science and technology, health and wellness, arts and humanities, and global cultures.
We support parents, caregivers, educators, scientific researchers, civic leaders and health professionals in addressing critical issues facing children.
We embrace change and innovation in order to address the changing landscape of childhood.
We introduce children and families to the diverse cultural life of the city and are a vibrant urban meeting place for all in Boston and beyond.
