“creating a compelling destination for the community”
To create a compelling destination for our community to play and learn by experiencing literature, storytelling and the art. The Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem was conceived by the Junior League of Winston-Salem as its 75th anniversary gift to the community. The Museum — now a separate 501 (c) (3) nonprofit — opened its doors on November 20, 2004, following a successful capital campaign. In 2011, the Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem was honored to be awarded a $150,000 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Museums for America program. Museums for America is the nation’s largest federal funding program for museums. Reviewed by panels of professional peers, these grants are highly-competitive. The Museum’s grant funded a new interactive playscape – Kaledioscape – and six additional, outdoor, participatory art installations.
