A letter from the Museum Director

The Museum has exciting news to share with you. This year, the Museum will be celebrating our 20th birthday. Soon we will announce our birthday party plans-so please keep a lookout!

Since opening in 1991, it has been our vision to offer children and families affordable, hands-on learning activities to enhance early learning as well as support family bonding through meaningful parent and child programs. Please accept our warmest and most heartfelt thank you for your help in making this vision a reality.

During the past 20 years, over 600,000 pairs of hands and feet have played at the Museum. Though our exhibits and building are well-loved, it is time for revitalization and renewal. The constant stress of nature and age, and the exuberant play of children have led to wear and tear on our beloved firehouse building and its exhibits.

The Museum is seeking funding to renovate and refurbish this heavily utilized cultural gem to enhance the public’s enjoyment and use of the Museum for years to come. We need help from donors, volunteers, and partners to achieve this goal and live up to the promise to serve the learning needs of children and families. If you would like to join this effort, please contact me at (508) 230-3789. We could really use your help.

Again, thank you for your support.

I look forward to hearing from you!

– Paula Peterson, Executive Director
