Who We Are

EdVenture offers a variety of programs and educational services to enhance school curriculum. These include fun and interactive educational programs for afterschool, homeschool, and early childhood audiences and development programs for teachers and youth. We also provide instruction in fire and life safety and host camps and birthday parties throughout the year.

Additionally, our full-time employees, part-time staff, and volunteers proudly serve more than 200,000 visitors to our museum each year.

What We Do

EdVenture Children's Museum is a fun place to work, volunteer, learn and play! Our mission is to inspire children, youth, and the adults who care about them to experience the joy of learning. Through our work, we aspire to create new generations of lifelong learners by addressing the educational needs in the areas of science literacy and early learning through experiences that develop skills in critical thinking, inquiry, creativity and innovation.

We are a locally-managed, not-for-profit informal education museum, supported in part by the City of Columbia and Richland County. We house eight world-class exhibit galleries, a library, learning laboratories, resource centers, and two outdoor gallery spaces.
