CMOM in the Community

EatSleepPlay

CMOM has partnered with health and medical experts and community agencies to help families make smart choices when it comes to their physical, emotional and environmental well-being.

Early Childhood

Through CMOM partnerships, Museum staff helps to train caregivers working with low-income families and provides opportunities for young children in temporary housing.

Creativity

Through alliances with community organizations, CMOM helps children learn to express themselves while developing their confidence and skills.

Access to CMOM

At CMOM, we believe that our unique, interactive exhibits and programs should be available to all children. We’ve created a number of programs to make this a reality.
