HISTORYAfter years of discussions and planning, a St. George Children's Museum board was formally organized in 2010.

In 2013, the City of St. George agreed to rent the two lower floors of the historic Community Art building for the museum at a minimal annual fee.
The museum opened in November of 2013.
A formal ribbon cutting was held on January 18, 2014.
