Why LICM is Vital to our Future

Our community comes together in one space to foster the growth of our next generation of artists, scientists, educators, entrepreneurs and citizens. With materials often not available in your own home - whether it’s 10,000 KEVA planks or musical instruments from around the world - we provide opportunities for all children to explore the world around them and the world of ideas without judgment. 

Our open environment encourages children to move freely and test their independence. By moving throughout the Patterns Studio, navigating Climb-It or uncovering a new talent in a hands-on workshop, every child’s confidence grows as a problem-solver and creative thinker. The Museum is a safe place where we encourage adult-child interaction as well as observation and appreciation of our children’s growing skills during their endless experiences of discovery.

Our Website

January 2017: We launched the new website you see here to capture the essence of the Museum in an easy-to-use mobile friendly format. Now with more in-depth information about our exhibits and programs in a translatable and accessible interface, licm.org addresses the needs and interests of our community. 

With the help of local interactive agency Blenderbox, we developed new features including online ticket sales and a convenient calendar make the user experience simple. The website will continue to change and grow to add to the visitor experience over time, and your input is critical to its continued success. Let us know what you think!
