Curious Kids' Museum

CKM was founded by educators and parents to provide an environment that invites curiosity, allows exploration, celebrates childhood and inspires learning!

Opened in 1989, the Museum on the Bluff has fulfilled the founders' mission to provide a place where "Learning is Fun" through interactive, hands-on exhibits. In 2010, the Curious Kids' Museum had the opportunity to expand and open a second location in partnership with the Silver Beach Carousel and Shadowland Ballroom, by opening DZ below the bluff.

With a shared mission and philosophy, both museums are places where children and their adults can pursue their natural curiosity through creative, hands-on play!

We hope to see you soon!
