Southern California Children’s Museum is founded by a small, hardworking group of parents who saw a need for quality early childhood education options and decided to take action. Since receiving our 501c3 non-profit status, we’ve been operating one day programs and raising funds to create a permanent SCCM that can make a huge difference within our community. A MUSEUM WITHOUT WALLS Southern California Children’s Museum recently secured a permanent home in Pasadena! While we have opened our space, we have limited exhibits and continue to fundraise and research all of the fun exhibits we want to bring to life! We remain committed to bringing you high-quality educational exhibits and programming. Check out News and Events for more information and sign-up for email updates to stay informed about the ongoings of this great place.



From the start, we’ve always envisioned building a permanent home for Southern California Children’s Museum, with galleries for Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Farm to Table, and My California exhibits. Here, we could bring to life exciting experiences geared toward children under eight, including: An interactive farmers’ market exhibit A Hollywood Bowl dramatic play and music exhibit A Santa Monica Pier water play exhibit A Griffith Park Observatory camping exhibit A LACMA Urban Light sensory exhibit A library exhibit A construction zone exhibit A doctor’s office exhibit A Rose Bowl float art and crafts exhibit Simply put: We dream of more for SCCM, and we’re working hard to make it happen.
