209 Giving Tuesday?
209GivingTuesday – a program of the Community Foundation of San Joaquin - is a county-wide 24-hour virtual fundraiser that is designed to bring the county together, connect donors to local nonprofits, and raise unrestricted funds and awareness for San Joaquin County nonprofits.
For over 25 years the Museum has provided a safe, fun and educational facility for families. Although our operations have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are more inspired than ever, to continue our goal of providing this space to children for the next 25 years.
What's next? We are especially excited about plans for a new permanent exhibit, "Destination Space", coming soon to the Museum. Space exploration, rockets, astronomy, and aeronautics will come alive for kids as they interact with this awe-inspiring Space exhibit. Featuring our own hometown astronaut Jose Hernandez, "Destination Space" will be a great attraction to our city and a wonderful inspiration to our youth. Planning and design are now in progress with completion planned in May 2021. Stay tuned for more details!
