In accordance with CDC guidelines for child-focused entities, masks are required for ages 2 and over as well as staff. Currently, those under 5 do not have access to a vaccine so we are doing our part to protect our little friends.

Since opening our discovery garden in 2018, Edwardsville Children's Museum has helped kids grow their love of the great outdoors through free play and exploration.

But what will the futures of our little adventurers look like as the climate crisis grows and the world’s forests disappear before their eyes? While fighting deforestation requires a global effort, there is something we can do to affect real change in our neck of the woods.

Through the Edwardsville Children’s Museum Micro Forest project, we’re bringing the community together to build a better world for our kids, one tree at a time.
