Dot Org:WOW! Children’s Museum

WOW! was founded in Louisville in 1996 by Lisa and Dario Atallah, community members who understood the importance of play in children’s learning. With support from the City of Lafayette, we relocated in 2004 to the old Lafayette fire station. WOW! has grown into a beloved community resource and has proudly served over one million children and families throughout the Boulder County community.

WOW! Children’s Museum is committed to being a gathering place for all Boulder County children and families. We believe in the power of learning through play to improve our lives and community. We respect, value and celebrate the unique attributes, characteristics and perspectives that make each person who they are. We also believe that bringing diverse individuals together allows us to better understand, support and engage our community. It is our aim, therefore, that our Museum and programs are accessible, meaningful and welcoming to all audiences.
