The Lander Children’s Museum shares, “[Founder Martha Howard- Sempert had] an idea to serve outreach education for families and schools and to provide a safe place for children of Lander to use hands-on discovery to learn and play! In the past, almost two decades, Lander Children’s Museum has seen almost 50,000 visitors.”

Earlier this week, the 501(c)(3) non-profit announced a plan to expand in 2020. This expansion coincides with their 20th anniversary in March.

The museum notes, Palace Pharmacy Owner “Jolene Bilbee-Osback has graciously extended an invite for Lander Children’s Museum to join Palace Pharmacy in their new location and nearly double our space!”

Palace Pharmacy announced on their Facebook page in August they will be moving into the former Shopko building at 1255 Main Street in Lander.

The Lander Children’s Museum shared key features to its new space below:

  • expanded exhibit space
  • larger classrooms
  • technology upgrades
  • renovated facility
  • natural greenspace playground with improved parking and access

They are asking for “community support in this necessary expansion!”

The museum said, “Members of the museum board of directors and volunteers have been planning this campaign since Fall of 2018. About 75% of the museum’s current expenses are funded by our low membership and admission rates, with the rest coming from donations and grants.”

“The generosity we have received in the last 19 years has been overwhelming! The support for this campaign will allow us to offer even more to the children and families in our community for decades to come!”
