Welcome to the enchanting world of the New Children's Museum, where our mission is to ignite the spark of curiosity and wonder in every child's heart. We empower young minds to embark on exciting journeys of exploration, artistic creation, and personal growth, regardless of the challenges they may face. Collaborating closely with talented artists, we curate awe-inspiring installations and programs that cater to the diverse physical, emotional, and educational needs of our cherished young visitors.


It's our firm belief that every child deserves access to the transformative power of art and creativity, which is why more than 30% of our guests enjoy the magic of our museum through complimentary or significantly reduced admission fees.


Now, we invite you to join us on a truly enchanting quest - the Magical Treehouse Gala. This extraordinary event isn't just about celebrating; it's about making dreams come true. Your generous support will serve as a foundation for our access programs for the year. Together, we are the architects of hope, providing each child with the key to unlock their unique journey through the realms of art, play, and boundless imagination! Attire for the gala is cocktail attire, with a magical twist if you so desire! Get into character by dressing as your favorite historical, literary, or storybook figure.


For those who have already purchased a ticket, we thank you and cannot wait to see you in the storybooks on October 14th!

The developmental, creative, and community resource needs of San Diego children and families is great. Proceeds from The Magical Treehouse gala directly benefit our many access and impact programs. From free field trips for Title I schools, to county-wide community partnerships, to free summer access for military families, to piloting new Social Emotional Learning & Art curricula in elementary schools, the impact the Museum has reaches beyond our physical walls.
