  • "I love the diversity of projects that we get to work on and the talent of my coworkers..."

“I am proud to work alongside so many creative, talented, and hard-working individuals.  Whether they create extraordinary family learning exhibits, help maintain our amazing facility, or interact directly with the children and families who visit, they each share a piece of themselves because they love The Children’s Museum as much as I do and they enjoy playing a part in transforming lives,”  said Dr. Jeffrey H.
