The Capital Campaign: A New Place for Play 

Wonderscope’s premier destination children’s museum is coming to KC in 2019!  Located at Red Bridge Shopping Center,  the new Wonderscope will be a dynamic experience for learning through play.  A modern facility built from the ground up will feature hands-on exhibits and unique programming to inspire, educate and entertain.

A children’s museum is only as great as the level of community support it receives. Learn more about the Capital Campaign.
