PROFILE

Austin Children’s Museum was founded in 1983 by a grassroots group of parents and educators who wanted local children to have more educational and cultural opportunities. At that time we were a “museum without walls”—our founder drove tabletop exhibits around town in her station wagon and presented activities and programs in schools, parks, libraries and even malls. In 1987, we settled into our first brick-and-mortar home – a 5,000 square foot building on West 5th street. For the next ten years we presented exhibits, experiences, and educational programs for local kids and families. During this time, we developed exhibits that traveled to other children’s museums around the country, gaining quite a reputation.
