kidscommons Charity Profile
A fun, safe, and inviting place, kidscommons nurtures exploration, collaboration, and creativity within all children and their caregivers. It is a place to learn about our community and our world.
When kidscommons Children’s Museum opened in downtown Columbus, Indiana on October 1, 2005, visitors discovered exciting exhibits in a space five times larger than the original facility housed in The Commons Centre. Facilitated by local architect Louis Joyner and assisted by Quatrefoil Exhibit Designers from Maryland and professionals from the Cincinnati Children’s Museum, kidscommons has been designed to serve children from infants through age fourteen.
