CMOO Entrance


Incorporated in 2013, The Children’s Museum of Oswego (CMOO) was founded by a group of Oswego residents desiring to expand the educational and recreational opportunities available to the children of Oswego County and surrounding communities. The Children’s Museum of Oswego seeks to be a year-round place for fun, safe, and educational play. CMOO is a 501(c)(3) Non-profit organization and is chartered by the New York State Board of Regents through the New York State Education Department.

Our Mission

To establish a Non-Profit Children’s Museum in the City of Oswego for the benefit of children, families, educators, and caregivers in our community. The Museum will house a variety of interactive exhibits designed to promote physical and intellectual development. Exhibits will focus on aspects of current and historical local significance, imaginative play, the arts, science, and mathematics. The Children’s Museum of Oswego also offers programs for various age groups that provide a structured learning objective such as crafts, topics in science exploration, environmental studies, music and movement, and literacy activities. In addition to creating educational opportunities, the mission of The Children’s Museum of Oswego includes enriching family values, developing environmental stewardship and civic values in the children of our community as well as providing a center to learn about healthy behaviors and engage in physical activity.
