We empower children and families. Why? As a children’s museum, we feel we have a responsibility to work toward a world in which each and every child develops curiosity, confidence and self-worth.

All year long the Mid-Hudson Discovery Museum offers hands-on programming to help children explore the world around them, practice skills and learn new things. Much of our programming focuses on helping children develop “school readiness” skills – those skills that predict success when a child enters school.

We also believe that parents and teachers are incredible facilitators of early learning. That is why our educational programs also engage the adults who support children.
