Message From the Executive Director


Cheshire Children’s Museum is celebrating its 5th birthday!


Over 136,000 people have visited since we opened on August 23, 2012 in the Colony Mill Marketplace.   Earlier this year we moved into our new location at The Center at Keene.  We were able to construct additional exhibits with our larger space.  Almost 30,000 people visited in the past year!


There are so many people to thank – too numerous to mention everyone by name because so many members of our community have been involved.  We are very grateful for our exhibit sponsors, donors, museum members, board members and all the visitors who have come to play at the museum.  The board of directors and museum staff deserve high fives for their dedication to making the museum the best place that it can be and for the distinction of having the museum voted the best fun place for kids 5 years in a row!


We are fortunate to have partners in MoCo Arts and The Monadnock Humane Society who visit the museum monthly to share their mission with our visitors.  The museum also works with local social service agencies to allow their clients access to the museum when working with a caseworker.  We believe it’s important for everyone to play!


We are looking forward to many more birthdays as part of our wonderful community and hope that if you haven’t come to play yet, that you will very soon!



With a grateful heart,

Deb Ganley
