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.

at the Age of Wonder
At The Edwardsville Children’s Museum we are committed to stimulating curiosity and cultivating learning at the age of wonder.
We believe that kids of all ages learn through discovery and hands on play. Our exhibits and programs are designed to build happy and curious learners from ages 6 months - 60 years.
