The Children's Museum of Eau Claire— Fun for the Whole Year!

The Children's Museum of Eau Claire exists as an interactive environment for children and their grown-ups that inspires imagination, discovery, creativity and the love of learning. One of the ways that CMEC best accomplishes this mission is through annual memberships. Although there is tremendous value in even just one visit to the Museum, the most significant and lasting impact happens over time, through multiple and consistent visits—in other words, through membership.

And of course, there are some great perks, too!

  • FREE Admission for an entire year
  • Unlimited access to all 3 floors of hands-on exhibits and programs
  • Discounts on birthday parties, signature events and Museum shop purchases
  • And much more!

With a membership, you can visit all day or stop by for half an hour in between errands. We offer a variety of membership options to meet your family’s needs. Take a look below to find the one that’s right for your family!

  • Membership privileges do not extend to CMEC members when they are visiting as part of an organized field trip or guests at a birthday party.

*Birthday Party Vouchers and Ticket Vouchers must be treated and used like cash. Ticket Voucher holders must still register for the special event of their choice in advance. Ticket Voucher does not guarantee holder admission to an event. Event admission is dependent on space. CMEC Special events do sell out, and event admission cannot be granted to Ticket Voucher holders if their event of choice sells out before they have redeemed their voucher. Birthday Party Voucher holders must book their birthday party at least two weeks in advance. Birthday Party Vouchers do not guarantee that a particular party date will be available. Birthday Party Vouchers are good for one CMEC themed birthday party with up to 13 guests (children & adults). Additional guests may be added for $5 per usual birthday party policy.
