For over 35 years, Great Explorations has been Tampa Bay’s preeminent children’s museum supporting practical learning applications through a proven creative curriculum. Our mission remains focused on stimulating learning through creativity, play and exploration.
As the nation’s first children’s museum to open a licensed preschool, we are proud to stimulate curiosity and provide enrichment through a carefully curated hands-on learning environment.
WE STAND FOR:
Empowerment of expressive learning • Innovation through collaborative play • Passion for fostering growth
Meet Our Board!
The Board of Trustees at Great Explorations Children’s Museum supports the mission, vision, and work of the Museum by engaging in Museum programs and events, advising on the management of the staff and facilities, providing financial support, and acting as advocates for the Museum in the community. Our Board is comprised of members from a variety of areas of expertise, backgrounds, and interests. In addition to Great Explorations Children’s Museum’s 19 current Trustees, we have an Ex Officio, Scott K. Wagman.
Trustees attend board meetings throughout the year, a Board Retreat, and various museum events. All members also are involved in at least one committee. Trustees assist in the recruitment of additional members to add to the diversity of the Board, by inviting community members, colleagues, and friends with an interest in the advocacy of children, play and early child development to become involved.
