About the Children's Museum
Above & Beyond Children's Museum is a non-profit organization serving children and their caring adults in Sheboygan County and its out of town visitors. Located in downtown Sheboygan, it has enjoyed 30 years of community service enhancing the lives and experiences of children and their families. From its humble beginning as a traveling road show featuring interactive children’s exhibits, it quickly outgrew its first location open only one day a month, to become an established community treasure offering service six days a week. It has been operating from its three-story historic location since 1999, enriching thousands of children’s lives.
Above & Beyond Children's Museum provides almost 10,000 square feet of exhibit space offer a vast interactive environment where families can discover hands on learning together. Their mission is "A special place for children and their families where play and education connect through exploration and discovery." So whether you’re making impressions on the life-size Giant Pin Screen, voyaging in the USS Efroymson Ship, or playing Teacher in the 1900′s schoolhouse, you'll discover fun within each of the educational exhibits.
There is so much fun for your family to discover at Above & Beyond Children's Museum in the landmark 1892 building that formerly housed the People’s Clothing Store in Sheboygan, WI. During Spring, Summer, or Fall, you'll want to plan extra time to check out the Purple Octopus accessible playground outside the children's museum.
