Organizational Profile
The idea for the Long Island Children’s Museum (LICM) started as a dinner conversation in 1989 between a group of Long Island educators, artists, and businesspeople. They wondered why Long Island didn’t have the type of institution they visited often on their family travels across the country. Conversation led to commitment that produced a nationally recognized community asset. The Museum opened as a private, not-for-profit institution in November 1993 in a 5,400-square-foot donated demonstration site. The permanent Museum opened on February 27, 2002. The Museum provides a diverse mix of family friendly live performances in a 145-seat, state-of-the-art theater; a variety of educational programs; enriching exhibit content in its four classroom-size learning studios; parent workshops; and art, science and humanities workshops and pop-up programming.
