The Children's Museum Tucson-Oro Valley's mission is to provide fun, play-based, interactive, hands-on learning experiences for children and their families. The Children's Museum Tucson was founded as the Southwest Children's Exploratory Center in November 1986. Through all its growth, the Museum never lost sight of the founders' vision to provide fun, hands-on learning experiences for kids. It now has 17,000 square feet and 13 exhibit areas filled with components that encourage kids to build, create, imagine, explore and discover. In 2015, we expanded with Children's Museum Oro Valley, a satellite location specially sized for kids ages 0-5. With an Early Childhood Education focus, CMOV's exhibits and programs are designed to stimulate curiosity and motivate learning through play.
