Providing kids and families a fun and safe environment to learn, engage and play together
Donate to CDM on Give More 24!
Everyone at Children’s Discovery Museum is super excited to be a part of the Give More 24!. our region’s awesome 24-hour online giving day. This community-wide event is organized by the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington and is scheduled to launch at 12:00 am on September 21. So mark your calendars now, because we need amazing supporters like you to rally friends and family for the Children’s museum and help us raise donations during these 24 hours of giving.
By giving whatever you can on this one day, you’ll also give more. That’s because every gift will be multiplied through a large stretch pool. The more money you help us raise, the better.
Help us give something more during this community-wide event. Together, we’ll show off southwest Washington’s spirit of giving, raise awareness about the Children’s Discovery Museum and celebrate the collective effort it takes to make this region great. You can learn more and sign up today here at the Give More 24! website.

Connect with Cowlitz Children’s Discovery Museum
The Children’s Discovery Museum is a hands on, interactive museum in Cowlitz County Washington. It started as a “pop-up” experience and with community and volunteer effort opened for regular hours in January for children and families to have a safe fun environment to engage in imaginative play, the arts, science and culture and learn about the world around them.
Favorite interactive learning exhibits include Farm to Market, Safe on the Water, Light Shadows, Dance Corner, Giant Lincoln Logs, Nature Niche, Wind Tunnel, Harmonographs, Laser Challenge, Lego Tables, Puppet Theatre, Book Nook, and probably the biggest laughter and squealing generator is our Ping Pong Ball Shower!
Our exhibits are based on the philosophy of play with real stuff where children of all ages are encouraged to find their own answers through hands-on exploration that are concrete and relevant . . . and fun!
Our most common comment from those who have attended the museum is “This is exactly what we need – we didn’t have anything else like this!” The Children’s Discovery Museum in Cowlitz Washington is the perfect gift to the community and its children!
The Children’s Discovery Museum is a gathering place for families to spend time learning and playing together. It’s the kind of place that has the power to bring out the best in us and shows that we are a community that values children, families, creativity and the importance of lifelong learning.
