We’re in the era of experiences! Southern California Children’s Museum provides play-based activities designed to foster excitement and spark a real sense of wonder. This isn’t a park. It’s much more than the zoo. Whether interacting with a fire engine, getting a little dirty in a construction zone, or experiencing what it’s like to perform at the Hollywood Bowl—SCCM exhibits are here to create more for kids who, let’s face it, deserve more.

It takes a village, and we’re currently looking (and grateful) for more villagers who are passionate about creating something bigger for their families. Help us fill the void in arts, culture, and nature for our children with a 501c3 tax-deductible donation.

Our best ideas are yet to come: A donation to SCCM means more quality events and out of the box activities, and it brings us one step closer to unveiling permanent exhibits.
