Ways to Support Your Favorite Children’s Museum!

For nearly 40 years, Discovery Gateway children’s museum has been educating and inspiring generation after generation of local children, first as The Children’s Museum of Utah, and now at our present location at The Gateway in downtown Salt Lake City.

Help us continue to create family memories, cultivate creative expression, spark scientific curiosity, and encourage kids of all ages to imagine, discover, and connect with their world to make a difference. There are several ways for individuals to contribute to the Museum and its mission.
