Welcome to YOUR place of discovery!

Welcome to the spot…a Child’s Museum - an emerging premier destination site for children and families. Located inside Prescott Gateway Mall, the museum is open every Friday and Saturday 1 - 5 pm. Just $3 per person, children and adults enjoy self-guided experiences in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) at our newest exhibit - Quantum Quizzics: Hands-on Science for Inquisitive Kids! Kids and adults can get enough of our Water, Air, Light, Wind, Magnets, Robots, Gears, Research, Recycling and more!

the spot...a Child's Museum provides unique and meaningful programs and exhibits for all children that educate them in the concepts of their world and build a lifelong interest in learning. We offer a dynamic, constantly-evolving museum format that incorporates all of the day-to-day facets of life specifically related to STEM and a strong focus on the history and culture of the local area.

the spot...a Child's Museum's structure focuses on the future and our programs offer an innovative and ecologically minded environment that promotes the “green” initiative. It is our goal to use non-toxic, recycled, and sustainable materials, renewable resources, socially responsible practices, and earth-friendly behaviors in our buildings, our exhibits, our activities and programs.

The Children’s Museum Alliance, Inc. addresses children and their futures as change agents, inventors, problems solvers, idea sharers, self-initiators, future creatives and thought leaders by establishing a quality, educational museum that provides interaction with people, the environment and the future.

The Museum is staffed, guided and managed 100% by a team of dedicated volunteers. We are seeking funding and in-kind support from individuals, corporations, educational institutions and organizations to support the Museum in its emerging status today as well as to help us realize our impressive plan for the future. Find out how to support the spot...a Child's Museum with your generous donation or volunteer service. Please contact us for more information on how you, too, can foster interactive learning and discovery for all!
