ICM for Everyone
The Iowa Children’s Museum (ICM) is dedicated to providing quality active learning opportunities to ALL children. ICM for Everyone programs are designed to remove barriers, meet community members where they are, and welcome all audiences to experience the Power of Play.
If you believe play is a universal right, donate now and join our mission! Your gift will inspire a new generation of learners and provide valuable play opportunities to children in our community.
Museum visitors who participate in qualifying programs can play in the museum free of charge during normal open hours.
