The Move for the Museum Challenge virtual event is back for a third year!
Every day, the staff and board of the Santa Fe Children’s Museum work hard to ensure that our educational programs, facilities and driving spirit are accessible to as many children and families in northern New Mexico as possible. This is your opportunity to help us further our mission and make life better for the people in our state.
The last two years, with the global pandemic, brought unprecedented challenges. This year brings its own challenges, including the statewide impact of the wildfires. As families in our area evacuated their homes, the museum immediately responded by delivering Grab-n-Go kits to shelters and took our mobile planetarium to Glorieta.
These recent challenges have pushed the staff and board of the museum to be more flexible and creative in the way we serve children and their families. We believe this is an amazing opportunity for us all! We are working to find better ways to serve our constituencies in Santa Fe and surrounding communities in spaces beyond our flagship museum. Recognizing that transportation and other barriers prevent many families from visiting the museum, we look to deliver the joys of learning and play closer to where people live.
As we say in our value statement, “We champion a community dedicated to creating a more diverse, equitable, empathetic and enjoyable world.”
