Kids at Heart

Meet our Staff and Board of Directors!

The Children's Museum of Eau Claire is a place where kids play to learn and grown-ups learn to play! That's why our Board of Directors and staff are made up of grown-ups who truly believe in CMEC's mission to encourage imagination, discovery, creativity, and the love of learning. Here is a list of grown-ups who help make play possible for children in Eau Claire and the Chippewa Valley!
