Welcome to Great Explorations Children’s Museum’s Great Expansion!

I’m Scott Wagman and I‘m proud to be the chair of the $2 million capital campaign to make your children’s museum provide more fun, better play, and a bigger impact! For 30 years, Great Explorations has brought a tremendous benefit to the children and families of Pinellas County by offering a safe, educational and fun place for families to come together and grow. Great Explorations provides the best value in quality, educational entertainment on the west coast of Florida. Our current location draws visitors from across the county, state, country and beyond. Recent years have seen an unprecedented demand for our programs, play spaces, parties and preschool classes. We are now faced with a decision to expand and complete the build-out of a location that has proven to be successful. Within the scope of work, we plan to complete the upper level, refresh our existing exhibits, bring in new exhibits, and expand our award winning preschool. Our nationally accredited “small but mighty” children’s museum will be positioned to serve our families well into the future. I hope that the story of Great Ex and our plans for the future will inspire you to join me, the capital campaign committee, the board of trustees and our outstanding leadership team in contributing to our goal of $2 million for the Great Expansion.

Thank you,

Scott Wagman, Capital Campaign Chair
