about us


Open since 1999, the Children's Museum of La Crosse has welcomed over 1 million visitors to learn and play together! 

We are pleased to be a member of the international Association of Children's Museums (ACM) and the Association of Science & Technology Centers (ASTC). Children's Museums are not only fun, they help develop foundations for academic and personal success. 

Learn more about the value of children's museums in this article "Why We Need Children's Museums" by Richard Rende, PhD.

We proudly have "of La Crosse" in our name to indicate our location in beautiful, historic downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin, but we are your Museum, whether you live in our neighborhood, in another part of our region, or in another state. We welcome your visits, questions, and input.
