The Children’s Museum at Saratoga is dedicated to creating an interactive community that inspires curiosity, sparks imagination and nurtures discovery.
The Museum is also committed to fostering active parent involvement in children’s learning, to serving as a resource for school districts in the area, and to ensuring that its programs and services are accessible to all children.
Founded in 1990 by community parents and educators, the Children’s Museum occupied donated space in the Downstreet Marketplace building on Broadway in Saratoga Springs before renting space at 36 Phila Street in the fall of 1994. In November 2001 the Museum moved from the Phila Street location to 69 Caroline Street. To pay for all the new exhibits and renovations at Caroline Street, the Board launched a multi-year capital campaign, raising more than $500,000.
