Project History

Inspired by the need for a children's destination, where kids could be kids and parents could interact with their kids, a group of three dedicated community members joined together to form the founding committee of the Children's Museum of Marathon County (CMMC) in 2012. The founders are parents of young children with background in non-profit organizations, fundraising, finance, tourism, and children's museum. What began as wishful conversations turned into a true questioning of whether Marathon County needed a children's museum. They began to ask friends, teachers, community leaders and business owners if they felt there was a need and the answer was a resounding yes and the real planning began.
