Play is the way young children learn and develop. At the Children’s Museum of Brownsville we believe that play is a necessity, not a luxury, and that every child should have a safe and nurturing place to play. The Children’s Museum of Brownsville is the perfect environment for children to play and learn alongside their caring adults.

As a community based organization, the Children’s Museum of Brownsville is asking for your help by supporting our annual fundraiser, “A Night at the Museum – Fabulous Las Vegas”. This event will be held Saturday, September 30, 2017 at the Ringgold Civic Pavilion. The event includes a cocktail hour, hors d’oeuvres, auction and an exciting evening for adults only.

Proceeds from our event will enhance our exhibits, develop new programming and extend our outreach into the community.
