Why Support Us?

You can help open doors for children.

Thanks to our generous supporters, Knock Knock Children’s Museum is able to expose each young visitor to a world of possibility and opportunity and ignite a spark in them that can help them grow up to make our world a better place. 

As an independent, 501(c)3 non-profit organization, nearly one-half of our operating budget comes from community support and philanthropic donations from individuals like you. Every dollar you donate goes directly toward shaping the minds of the children who visit!
