Orpheum Children's Science Museum
The Orpheum Children’s Science Museum is a regional, non-profit, children’s organization developed to inspire, engage, and educate children through exploration of science and the arts. As part of this, we are committed being an inclusive organization, reaching out to share our resources with those in the community who have the fewest opportunities. OCSM serves more than 25,000 visitors annually, encouraging learning and imagination through play and experimentation. Located in the heart of downtown Champaign, the 9400 square feet that comprise the Museum’ building are made up of hands-on, discovery-based exhibits that reveal fundamentals in mechanics, navigation, anatomy, hydrology, paleontology, and more as well as an historic theater, currently under renovation.
The Museum’s collection of more than 20 permanent exhibits, which appeal primarily to children ages 2-12, is dynamic and growing. Our theater is an historic community treasure that the Museum is rescuing. As a community based, volunteer organization, we rely on the active involvement of members, donors, foundations, and volunteers. The vitality of our organization is a testament to the strength of these community partnerships. OCSM serves local schools by providing field trips and exhibits that are aligned with Illinois State Science curriculum standards. Additionally, we provide camps, clubs, special events, after school, and weekend programs on a variety of topics .
