Who We Are

Mission & Values


Children’s Museum of Stockton provides hands-on exploration and learning opportunities to inspire lifelong curiosity, creativity, and innovation for children of all abilities and backgrounds.


Curiosity: We help children turn imagination into reality by cultivating a sense of wonder about the world around them, showing them what is possible for their lives, and encouraging exploration.

Education: We believe that learning through play is essential for the developmental and educational needs of all children.

Diversity and Inclusion: We seek to provide opportunities for multi-generational, cross-cultural interactions to serve the racially, socio-economically, linguistically, and culturally diverse needs of our community.

Safety: We aim to provide a safe, clean and accessible environment for discovery, imagination and fun.
