Children's Museum Celebrates 40 Years of Fun!

On September 12, 2021, The Children’s Museum celebrated 40 years of inspiring minds and giving space for families to come together and learn together. 40 years! It was a wonderful day full of fun, excitement, and above all, GRATITUDE!

The day consisted of FREE admission for all guests, as well as a FULL Party outside in our very own Heritage State Park. We had goodie bags, raffles, a DJ, police and fire trucks on display and so much more.  It truly was a celebration jam-packed of local business and patronage. It’s celebrations like these that deepen our gratitude to the community we love to serve. A special, BIG thanks to the below sponsors for helping us celebrate the most special day! THANK YOU to:

  • Dean Tech for providing delicious cupcakes
  • Carve Beauty for providing glitter hair styles for all interested
  • Holyoke Parks and Recreation for providing popcorn for all
  • Heritage State Park for providing fascinating SHAD Migration display
  • Holyoke Fire Department for providing Fire Truck displays and activities
  • Holyoke Police Department for providing squad car displays and activities
  • Reset Fitness’s Lindsay for demoing 2 FULL HOURS of Zumba fun!
  • Gary Rome/Dara Davignon for providing Goodie bags, which included a stuffed toy of their Mascot Jack, as well as a batch of “Jake’s Kids Cookie Mix”, where a percentage of proceeds go toward the Wonderfund of MA.  

A special thanks to Brian Nicks DJ Services for keeping the music pumping, and to Springfield Thunderbirds very own BOOMER for stopping by to hang out!
