A Thank You to our Supporters!

The annual Carnival & Science Spectacular is a major fundraiser for the Staten Island Children’s Museum. We sincerely thank our museum members and the entire community for your support. Your ticket purchases and attendance allows the Museum to continue to be a family-friendly destination and partner in our children’s education. Funds raised help the museum and in part, go to support free programs such as free access to the Museum for children living in foster care and a free return visit to every Staten Island child who visits the Museum as part of a class trip. Your support means so much to us, on behalf of the Board of trustees and employees, we sincerely thank you for your generosity.

Please join us in thanking our sponsors, whose generosity allowed us to produce such a fabulous Carnival & Science Spectacular!
