Contact us if you have unanswered questions! The Children’s Museum of Skagit County is a place where children learn through play and exploration in environments designed just for them. Reflecting their diverse communities, children’s museums create playful, interactive learning experiences. In an increasingly complex world, children’s museums provide a place where all kids can learn through play with the caring adults in their lives. The Children’s Museum of Skagit County produces programs and exhibits that transcend age and experience, and empower children to set their own pace. We offer opportunities for family learning as well for time to bond with family members.
