The mission of the Rocky Mount Children's Museum and Science Center is to raise awareness in those we serve of their global connection and "unique place in space" by encouraging their participation in science, mathematics, and technology. The Rocky Mount Children's Museum and Science Center is an excellent way for families to spend quality time with one another. Our programs and exhibits are especially engaging, hands-on, and fun for absolutely everyone.
