The mission of the Cape Cod Children's Museum is to encourage hands-on experiences that spark curiosity, creativity and imagination, engaging children and families in playful learning. The Cape Cod Children's Museum (CCCM) is the only children's educational resource of its kind on Cape Cod and hosts over 50,000 annual visitors - with half traveling from off-Cape. The closest children's museums are located at least an hour away.
At the Cape Cod Children's Museum, play is the work of childhood; play is how children learn and develop. The Museum is committed to providing engaging opportunities for play that has a purpose.
Programs and exhibits are thoughtfully designed to elicit creativity and imagination and teach children about the world around them through various sensory pathways (touch, sight, sound, movement). Parents and caregivers have opportunities to interact in playful learning, which encourages an educational dynamic that benefits the entire family. The Cape Cod Children's Museum nurtures 'the whole child' through music, creative movement, science, art, story time (literacy), exercise, and activities focused on local culture
