Come mess with us at the Children’s Museum on Saturday, April 7, 2018 for Family Night Out!

Dress for a mess as you explore the galleries and take part in magnificent messy mania at this family-friendly fundraising event in support of the Children’s Museum.

Join Sweet Impressions in chaotic cookie decorating fun as you frost your very own family cookie. Let untamed imaginations roar as you create a Wild Art family canvas with Artful Owl. Science becomes a hot mess with muddled slime concoctions, exhilarating experiments, and bold, blustering activities led by the University of Manitoba and University of Winnipeg’s Let’s Talk Science teams. Search for treasure in an oobleck mess. Make the highest bid to have your favourite family member drenched in slime in our Ultimate Slime Tank. Grab a messed up souvenir snapshot of your family’s experience at the Pixels and Giggles Photo Booth. After all the fun, relax and grab some grub in our Mess Hall catered by The Gates on Roblin.

What Am I Supporting?

The Children’s Museum is a registered non-profit children’s charity (#10348 0943 RR0001) that relies on earned revenue, including donations received through our fundraising events, to cover approximately 90% of our operating costs. As such, your support of the Children’s Museum’s Family Night Out Series is extremely meaningful. Proceeds generated by this fundraising event will enable the museum to enhance exhibits, create educational programs, and help fund our Access Programs – including the Free2Play Access Program, the Rural Access Program,
and the Explore-Abilities Access Program – which help to provide free museum visits and programming to under-supported children in Manitoba.
