Boston Children's Museum

Boston Children’s Museum is the second oldest, and one of the most influential children’s museums in the world. It was founded in 1913 by the Science Teachers' Bureau, a group of visionary educators dedicated to providing new resources for both teachers and students, as a center for the exchange of materials and ideas to advance the teaching of science. The museum is designed for children and families, and focuses on science, culture, environmental awareness, health & fitness, and the arts.

Boston Children’s Museum is a partner for STEMIEFest and has featured some of their science, technology, engineering, art, and math STEAM activities and videos. These include instructions and tips for engaging young children in STEM learning.
