Treasured for its free-ranging landscape of discovery & play, the Santa Fe Children’s Museum, started in 1985 by four Santa Fe educators, has always been a direct expression of the community it serves. Curiosity, inquiry, laughter, hopscotch, mud pies, dinosaurs, face-painting, robots, story-telling, puddle jumping, block-stacking, star-gazing, legos, stickers, snakes, and make-believe are just a few of our favorite things.
Happy Holidays Santa Fe,
The Santa Fe Children’s Museum has spent this past year celebrating our 30th anniversary. We are honored to have provided the Santa Fe community and beyond a place to explore and play. The museum has been a gathering place for families big and small during all seasons and we are thankful to have participated in so many families’ lives.
At 30 years of age it is not unusual for an organization to stop and assess one’s choices and look for ways to improve. Here at the museum we are doing just that. Over the past few months, we have been working with a group from UNM to better understand our constituents and ways we can improve the museum and your experience.
Beginning January 4th, we will be closed to the public while we improve our facilities, assess our exhibits and internal structures, and institute a deep cleaning.
If you have booked a party, no worries, we will be available for private events and parties. If you would like to book an event or party please give us a call!
We are working on some wonderful opportunities for our members to keep you busy while we work and will announce them soon. When we re-open to the public, we look forward to you visiting and letting us know how we have done.
If you have a favorite exhibit you’d like to see refurbished, please contact us to sponsor it!
We have been a favorite destination for children from across Santa Fe, New Mexico and the United States for 30 years! Help us continue to be a part of your lives and memories for another 30 years.
We look forward to seeing you in the New Year!
Michael & Sally
