MISSION: Louisiana Children’s Museum (LCM) envisions a world where communities value children, strengthen and support families, and improve life outcomes by ensuring access to safe, innovative play experiences.
Located in the heart of City Park, the Louisiana Children’s Museum is a vital non-profit institution providing families, a safe space to learn and play. With 8.5 acres of indoor/outdoor play for children, newborn to 8 years, families can enjoy 5 interactive galleries focusing on life in Southeast Louisiana in 4 major impactful areas: Sustainability, Early Learning and Literacy, Arts and Culture, and Health and Wellness. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach to Childhood Education, the Museum’s exhibits and educational programming are designed to spark curiosity and promote creativity.
In their efforts to impact the greater New Orleans community, the Museum participates in the Museums for All program, offering reduced admission to families receiving food assistance (SNAP benefits). In 2022, LCM’s outreach programs, such as such as Play Power and First 1000 Days, impacted over 12,000 students, educators, and caregivers.
Every investment – from admission tickets to donations – helps LCM thrive and continue its efforts. Corporate partners and businesses help further LCM’s mission through sponsorship of outreach programs and special events such as LCM’s annual fundraising gala, planned to be held on September 23, 2023.
Opportunities to support LCM include hosting a company meeting or event at its facilities and booking an interactive field trip or educators’ workshop. Make your mark and continue the legacy and mission of the Louisiana Children’s Museum.
