DISCOVER: DECEMBER NEWS FROM THE MUSEUM

SUPPORT THE MUSEUM THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

Looking back on this first full year of operation for the Museum, we are filled with gratitude. The Westchester Children’s Museum is now an integral part of the community. To date, more than 60,000 visitors have visited, as well as hundreds of schools, camp and community groups on field trips. Your contributions have enabled us to keep admission costs low; expand our programming for children from toddler through middle school; and ensure that we are a welcoming, safe, and vibrant learning center for all our children.

As a non-profit, the Westchester Children’s Museum relies on contributions from you to keep our doors open and to flourish. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today. With your help, we will continue to grow and provide valuable, necessary out-of-school enrichment, particularly for those who need it most. Please take a moment to make a donation to the Westchester Children's Museum. Follow this link to reach our secure donation form

There are nearly 1 million children under the age of 11 living within a 15 mile radius of the Westchester Children's Museum. Your donations will help enhance our exhibits, develop new programs, and overall make our museum accessible to as many children as possible for generations to come.

A WORLD OF PEZ ON DISPLAY

Nostalgia, favorite characters, happy faces, bright, irresistible colors - all of that captures the incredible collection of PEZ dispensers now on display at the Museum. Many thanks to David Weinreb, from Purchase, NY,  who donated a portion of his vast collection to the Museum. David has had a passion for PEZ since he was 11 years old; he is now a teacher at Fair Haven School in Fair Haven, NJ. A special shout out to his mom, Wendy Woodrow Weinreb, for connecting David and his collection to the Museum so everyone can enjoy it.
