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!
