The Children’s Museum opened in December 1990, and had over 9,000 visitors its first year. We focus on hands-on exhibits of all shapes and sizes to create a space for kids ages 1-12 to play and learn. Our museum offers kid-sized activities and areas so children can explore the world around them and expand their imagination through play.  Our original building is located in historic downtown Sebring, however we were closed to the public in January 2016 due to extensive repairs needed to our building and roof. Through hard work by our Board of Directors, we were able to open in a secondary location in the Lakeshore Mall in July 2017 to continue our mission. For our first year reopened, we saw over 14,000 guests in our temporary location.The Children’s Museum opened in December 1990, and had over 9,000 visitors its first year.

We are about to embark on the tremendous task of the Downtown building restoration. This rebuild will begin in September 2018 and take approximately 8-10 months. We will continue in our temporary spot in the local mall, until our projected grand re-opening date of Summer 2019.
