  • Where Fun and Learning Go Hand in Hand!

TEMPORARILY CLOSED

Our location at 4001 East 29th Street, Suite 80 in Bryan is currently CLOSED. Our BRAND NEW LOCATION at Lake Walk will open Winter 2020!

Hello Children’s Museum of the Brazos Valley family –

COVID-19 has rocked our world, to say the least – am I right? Through the rollercoaster of the last few months, we as an organization have tried to navigate through to the best of our ability – by offering more digital programs, by offering single family appointments, etc. – all in hopes of continuing to provide service to the Brazos Valley community, and especially to you, our members. We have enjoyed getting to see some of you back in the museum – but have missed getting to have a bright, laughter- and child-filled museum space this summer.
It has been a difficult season. As you can imagine, we have had a significant drop in income over the past few months. And while we have been able to cut some expenses – some remain the same, no matter if we are open or closed. We have been fortunate to have been able to use reserves to keep us going during this season of loss, fortunate because we know that has not been the case for many non-profits.
But this has also been a season of growth for us as an organization. We have been able to take a step back and look at where we are, where we need to be – and where we dream of being one day. We want to be a place of innovation and imagination – a place for families from the Brazos Valley and beyond to experience wonder and amazement and joy that knows no bounds. Our current space has been good for us – but we recognize its limitations – so we have been actively looking at alternate locations for the past year or so. We are finally ready to make that move!
Our new location will be at Lake Walk, Bryan-College Station’s emerging hub of technology and innovation. The new space, located at 4114 Lake Atlas Drive in Bryan, is scheduled to open December 2020/January 2021. We are so excited to move into this new location – a space of imagination and innovation for families in our community, and across the world.
In preparation for our move, we have closed our current location at 4001 East 29th Street, Suite 80 in Bryan. We regret that our doors will be shuttered for the 4 months or so required for our new location build-out – but rest assured, our new location will be filled with more excitement, innovation and PLAY than you can imagine! Plus, it is likely we would be unable to re-open safely for the next few months anyhow. (THANKS COVID!)

Members – you should have received an email detailing membership extension options. Please email Ashley Kortis at marketing@cmbv.org, if you would like to discuss a membership extension.

Thank you for the support you have given The Children’s Museum of the Brazos Valley. We look forward to seeing EACH of you in our new space at Lake Walk.

We love the Children’s Museum. They are always adding new exhibits. We have a membership and is well worth it. My little one never wants to leave. They are always having special events as well.
