Capital Campaign

The Campaign: A New Place for Play

Wonderscope has launched a $15 million capital campaign to build “A New Place for Play” and is asking everyone to join us and Imagine the Possibilities!

Wonderscope is bringing to Kansas City a premier destination experience for learning through play for children, families and educators. Our new museum will offer dynamic exhibits that provide hours of fun and educational exploration for children and their families.

Imagine the possibilities where young children, engaging in interactive, educational play, can learn social skills, acquire new educational skills and expand their intellectual potential.

The time is now!  We believe that the vibrant growth of the Greater Kansas City area supports the region’s need for a premiere children’s museum.  We are empowered by the vision that the education of our children is a shared community responsibility.

Wonderscope is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. We rely on contributions from individuals, businesses and foundations to help keep admission fees affordable. In 2019, we will be moving to a brand new building in the Red Bridge Shopping Center to bring you a whole new world of Learning, Playing and Growing. If you would like to help us reach our goal and make a difference for Kansas City, you support would be greatly appreciated.
