What We Do
Pretend City Children’s Museum is “the world in a nut-shell.” It is designed for children to learn how the real world works.
The museum is a child-size interconnected city built with rich educational intention, where children can assume various real-world roles.
Through interactive exhibits and activities facilitated by highly trained professional staff, children learn foundational math, reading and science skills while fostering curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork.
There is no better way for young children to develop self-confidence and essential social skills than through this type of imaginative play with other children. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization serving all children, Pretend City depends on community-based funding and guest support. The museum is also a unique community resource offering developmental screenings and tools for families, educators, and community agencies to empower the fostering of each child’s greatest potential.
