Our Mission:

Treehouse Children's Museum invites children, ages 2 to 12, and their grown ups to Step into a Story® through interactive and engaging exhibits and daily programs and special events that make learning child's play. We know that what you experience as a child shapes the adult you become. Treehouse is a place that shows children that they matter and that they can create and do amazing things. Treehouse supports and strengthens families and serves as an enriching resource for our schools, preschools, and Head Start programs.

 

Treehouse Is Celebrating Its 30th Anniversary in 2022!

Opening Day in the Ogden City Mall on February 29, 1992.

 

The private, nonprofit Treehouse Children’s Museum opened its doors in 1992 and has been providing unique educational exhibits and enriching programs for more than 175,000 visitors each year. Originally located in Ogden City Mall, Treehouse now has a signature building, the Elizabeth Stewart Treehouse Museum, on 22nd Street, which opened in 2006. With nearly 30,000 square feet of exhibits, a giant tree at its center, plus a theater, a global “village,” an American downtown, a Science Circus gallery, and much more, Treehouse was built with love for the most important people on the planet – our children. More than 3.5 million children and adults have visited Treehouse during the last 3 decades.

Thanks to all the generous donors who have provided contributions, grants, and sponsorships that have kept the Museum going and growing for 3 decades! Thanks, too, to our thousands of members who support Treehouse through their membership purchase.
