Expanding Minds Unlimited is Going on the Road!



We are sad to say but the Museum CLOSED it's doors this month!  Due to the high cost involved to keep the center open, we are restructuring to a traveling school program.

Contact Terrie Wieland at 760-917-0669 to book your class an exceptional program TODAY!  Terrie will bring the program to you and customize it to meet your curriculum needs.





More About the Museum!

Expanding Minds Unlimited's natural history, children's museum was founded by Terrie Wieland. As a young child Terrie always had an interest in science and nature.  She began collecting rocks throughout many family vacations. Over the years she developed quite a collection that expanded way beyond just rocks. In fact, she's collected enough items to fill a multi-room museum.  Her ability to work with children and her love for learning is a perfect fit for our center.  This self-funded project has been a life long mission for Terrie and now it's come to life!

With public hours on Saturdays everyone can enjoy a fun educational experience too!  You can interact and learn about our live animals and rescues, discover other parts of the world in our multi-cultural rooms, experience the rain forest, or read about our history through the Native American Indians and early settlers exhibits.  Join us for  fun activities in science, nature, art and more.  EMU has many things to keep our Colorado Springs community entertained!

Programs are available for all ages including children, people with special needs and seniors.

The museum is an education center devoted to expanding young minds and helping the Colorado Springs community through charitable efforts. We are also promoting awareness of conservation needs for our natural resources and we rescue exotic animals when the need arises.
