The KidsWork Children's Museum (KCM) is a cultural institution that brings children, families, and the community together to engage in fun, hands-on interactive play so as to nurture life-long learning and discovery.
The building of a children's museum is an enormous undertaking and will need the entire community's support. The KCM board, comprised of area parents, educators and business leaders, was formed in April 2007 with the goal of creating a Children's Museum in the Downtown Historic Frankfort Business District. The KCM is a non-profit 501c3 organization that has recently secured a retail space at the Trolley Barn at 11 S.White Street. This location is in the beautiful downtown historic district. The 6,700 square foot space is ideal for the KCM to fill with program rooms and exhibits and is an excellent start for the KCM to fulfill its mission to create an interactive learning opportunity for all of our children.
The KCM is Will County's first Children's Museum, leading the way for cultural and educational opportunities for families throughout our area. Over 30% of today's Children's Museums have been created as Downtown Revitalization Projects. It is our belief that the KCM is a much needed anchor for our downtown district and businesses throughout the area.
