What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We are working to build a children's museum in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, to serve the children and families of the Eastern Upper Peninsula, the families in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario (our sister city on the other side of the Canadian border), and the families that travel to our region to explore the Soo Locks and all of the historical sites and natural wonders our area offers.

Our programs

Planned exhibits are: an interactive Soo Locks exhibit; a Science of Hockey exhibit; a child-sized grocery store; a child-sized veterinary clinic and doctor's office; a climbing wall; and more.
