HOW IT BEGAN

The St. George Children’s Museum is the realization of a long-awaited dream and has been a challenging project for several years.  Many people have been unwavering in their goal to create a children’s museum in our community, and there was a proven public support for such a venue.

 NEW EXHIBITS

The Lied Museum in Las Vegas was moving to a new location and was willing to donate and/or sell nearly a million dollars worth of exhibits to SGCM.  Significant donations were received from the public which provided sufficient funds for these exhibits and professional transportation of them to St. George as well as enough to get the museum open.

Corporate sponsors, generous citizens and talented artists donated money, time and talent to create an attraction of the highest quality and one that would rival any Children’s Museum anywhere.
