Children's Museum of South Dakota - Play is for everyone!

  • Children's Museum of South Dakota 521 4th st Brookings, SD 57006 USA (map)

We believe that play is for everyone, and on Tuesday, Nov. 27, we will link arms with South Dakota Gives and more than 400 area non-profits, including 23 in Brookings, to make a difference for those who live, work, and play in this great state. 

We promote learning for children of all ages and abilities. In continuing our work to be a resource for all, we introduced our Access Initiative in October 2016.

The Access Initiative offers $1 admission or $15 yearlong family memberships to those who do not have the ability to pay. A donation to the Access Fund ensures that every child and family has access to a children’s museum. 

In recognition of South Dakota's first Day of Giving, the Larson Family Foundation will match, on a 1-to-1 basis, all donations from Brookings County given to the 23 Brookings non-profit agencies registered with South Dakota Gives on Tuesday, Nov. 27. 

To donate, please stop in and select an ornament off of our Giving Tree or give online via

Ornaments on our Giving Tree feature giving opportunities such as museum admission and membership for a family in need, STEAM camp scholarships, field trip admission for a title school, sensory toy gift baskets, and more. The tree will be available throughout the holiday season.

Thank you for helping us create a world that celebrates play and offers Museums for All!
