Children's Museum of South Dakota


Every Gift Helps Us Promote Learning Through Play

The Children’s Museum of South Dakota promotes learning for children of all ages and abilities through interactive, informal, hands-on exhibits and demonstrations.

We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization which relies on businesses and individuals to help us provide affordable, playful opportunities for children to learn, create, explore, and discover.

Although general operating costs have been endowed by the Larson Family Foundation, the Children’s Museum of South Dakota invites your support, through a tax deductible donation, that will allow us to offer interactive exhibits and educational programming.

And just like our visitors, gifts of all sizes are welcome! Donations can be made on-line by selecting the fund below:

A donation to the General Fund helps:

  • Maintain vibrant exhibits and programming that continuously inspire children to learn and grow.
  • Bring new experiences and added learning opportunities through traveling exhibits.
  • Provide high-quality family time in a place where children and adults learn together through play.
  • Support parents in their most important role as their child’s first teacher.
  • Encourage educators as they inspire our children to become life-long learners.

  • Bring the joy of the Museum to all children and families regardless of their ability to pay
