Explore Colorado Springs and visit the Expanding Minds Unlimited - Colorado Springs Children's Museum and education center!

Visit the FIRST Colorado Springs Children's Museum - - to offer live animals your children can pet, taxidermy animals and displays, museum quality displays on forests, oceans, native American and international cultures such as Africa, and more in science, nature and culture!

STEM - or STEAM - based educational displays are in place including hydroponics, astronomy, space and atmospheric sciences, and more. Our new museum has opened and includes ALL STEM content, with projects and hands-on activities for children through adults. Cooking classes will begin this Fall 2017, as well as expansion of our arts and crafts programs, the launch of our "Music Minors" musical program for kids, and hands-on physical activities that help children and adults exercise and learn self-defense skills to combat bullying and more through our exclusive "Kid Confidence" program developing nationwide.

Programs are available and developing for those with special needs such as adults with developmental disabilities, seniors, and more.

Phase 3 in our development will be a stand-alone facility next year, with larger-than-life displays and plenty of self-directed projects for kids of all ages to get into at the museum.

We are the Colorado Springs Children's Museum, the developing Colorado Springs Natural History Museum and much more!

The museum and education center is devoted to helping the Colorado Springs community through charitable efforts each month. Current endeavors include: providing food and clothing items such as socks, hats and gloves to the city's homeless at many of the parks in the city; advancing awareness of conservation of natural resources; rescuing exotic animals; promoting awareness and attaining resources for those with colon cancer, sepsis and other health issues; and finally providing a place for seniors and those with developmental disabilities to explore and learn.
