Since opening its doors in 2002, Northeast Texas Children’s Museum has served numerous children from the state, providing a creative and enriching learning experience through the museum’s many exhibits. We are thankful for our many friends and supporters. With help from the generous contributions from families, companies, and individuals, we are able to increase our programming, enhance our exhibit areas, and introduce new workshops and performers.
