2016 – A Record Year!

Did you know that in 2016, Providence Children’s Museum:
  • Welcomed a record 168,270 onsite visits, 30% free of charge. 
  • Brought engaging hands-on activities to 1,100 Head Start preschoolers and 250 school-age kids through after-school and summer programs at inner-city community centers, as part of its AmeriCorps program. 
  • Hosted over 1,400 low-income children and their family members at free Museum family nights. 
  • Conducted therapeutic visits for 438 children and parents in 152 court-separated families, as part of the Families Together program. 
  • Provided nearly 400 charitable memberships to low-income families. 
  • Engaged over 1,800 visitors with research by the Museum's academic collaborators in its Mind Lab
  • Welcomed 9,492 members in 2,077 families. 
  • And MUCH more!

All told, 46% of the Museum’s 2016 operating budget supported services for children and families in need.

Thank YOU for making this important work possible!
