Children’s Museum of Evansville
The Children’s Museum of Evansville, or otherwise know as, cMoe, reopened in Fall 2006 in the renovated former Downtown Central Library building with 18,000 square feet of exhibits. It hosts four main galleries, plus a multimedia theater entitled the ‘Freedom Gallery.’ ‘Work Smart’ focuses on engineering skill development and the freedom to build and create. ‘Quack Factory’ encourages explorers to follow a process and execute a plan for accomplishing a task while also offering physical challenges within a 28 foot climbing structure. The Quack Factory also provides water activities in the Wet Deck. ‘Speak Loud’ encourages children, among other activities, to dramatize a familiar story, play instruments from around the world, create an artistic masterpiece and express their feelings through music, drama, and the visual arts.
The mission of the Koch Family Children’s Museum of Evansville is to spark the curious minds and imaginations of children.
