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.
