About Us

Children creating images with string and pegs on a peg board.



PPCM is a community-built, hands-on educational destination in Southeast Colorado Springs, that engages ALL children and their grown-ups by sparking creativity and passion for life-long learning through purposeful play.



Our vision is to be a trusted, growing educational resource and a community collaborator that offers children opportunities to reach their unique potential.


The express objectives of PPCM are to provide:

  • A new local destination for residents and tourists as a dynamic hands-on, engaging and fun educational experience focused on the age group 0-10.

  • An educational laboratory for children to encounter boundless opportunities for discovery and imagination, sparking a passion for life-long learning. To bridge the gap between school and community and bring together districts, schools, teachers and staff in a collaborative effort to keep kids playing so they continue to love learning 

  • A compelling environment to nurture wonder and creativity, encouraging children’s innate desire to explore the world around them by creating a space that advocates for children. 

  • A community resource as an indispensable resource for children, families, the community at large and elementary-level educators as a mutually beneficial connecting point.

We are committed to providing access to all and nurturing the fundamental values of diversity, equity, access, and inclusion (DEAI).    

At the Pikes Peak Children's Museum, we are committed to creating an environment that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive for all members of our community. We believe that every child and family has the right to feel welcome and valued, and we strive to create a space where everyone feels seen, heard, and respected. To achieve this goal, we are committed to:

  • Embracing diversity: We celebrate the unique differences in each child and family who walks through our doors, including differences in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, ability, religion, and socioeconomic status.

  • Creating an inclusive environment: We are dedicated to creating a space where every child and family feels welcome and included, regardless of their background or identity. 

  • Providing equitable access: We believe that every child deserves access to high-quality educational experiences, regardless of their family's financial situation. We strive to remove barriers to access and provide opportunities for all children to learn and grow.
