Where the Bonds of Friendship Begin!  - Wilbraham Children's Museum
About Us

The Museum was formed in the spring of 1981 by local families to provide recreational and educational services for the small children of Wilbraham and surrounding communities. The equipment, exhibits and activities are geared specifically towards children 5 and under. 

The main functions of the Children’s Museum are to serve as a community center by offering playgroups, birthday parties and special events for small children.    

Inside the museum are a variety of exhibits. Current exhibits include a spaceship, a castle, a puppet theater, a dress-up box, a pretend kitchen, and two racecars. In addition, there are a number of toys and musical instruments available for playing, a train set, and a foam climbing structure for infants and toddlers.   

Outside on the playground you will find a variety of structures including a clubhouse, pirate ship, swing set, sandbox, and many climbing structures appropriate for children 5 and under. The playground is open year round from 9 am to 7 pm/dusk and is free of charge.  It is suggested that families who use the playground regularly consider making a monetary donation for it’s upkeep or become members and donate their time for one of the fundraising events.

The building is owned by the Town of Wilbraham but is on permanent loan to the Children’s Museum.

Our Mission is to provide a safe area for young children to learn and explore through hands on exhibits, creative arts, and engaging programs. With a focus on nurturing curiosity, creativity, and a love of learning, the Wilbraham Children's Museum provides a supportive community for children, parents and caregivers.

Our Vision - To nurture curiosity, creativity, and love of learning while fostering a supportive community for children, parents, and caregivers.

The Museum is operated entirely by volunteers including a volunteer Board of Directors, volunteer coordinators, and playgroup leaders.  Members and volunteers of the museum meet monthly with the Board of Directors to set museum policy, decide on expenditures, plan museum activities and make sure the museum functions smoothly.  If you have any questions about the museum please contact us at info@wilbrahamchildrensmuseum.com.
