Phoenix is the sixth largest city in the US. To date, 1,000,000+ people have visited - an average of 1,000 people a day, and over 5,000 member families. The Museum's mission is simple: To engage the minds, muscles and imaginations of children and the grown-ups who care about them, while promoting cooperative interaction, fostering cultural understanding, and enhancing parenting skills. The Museum emphasizes early childhood education and school-readiness for children from birth to 10, with emphasis on birth through 5.

More than 500 educational programs are presented each year - many through collaborative partnerships with other agencies in the community. Programs are focused on distinct areas - Health and Wellness, Early Education, Arts and Culture, the Environment, and Inclusion.

 The Children's Museum of Phoenix annual operating budget is ~$4.5million: 70% is provided through earned income while the remaining 30% must be garnered through contributions.  A long term partnership with the City of Phoenix provides the building, property, and additional resources for programs and facility needs.  The Museum is governed by a board of directors of 25 community leaders with diverse backgrounds and skills, and a shared passion for the success of the Museum.  Kate Wells has been the President & CEO since 2013 leading a team of 90 paid staff and hundreds of volunteers.
