About the Chambers County Children’s Museum:
Founded in August 2019, the Chambers County Children’s Museum “seeks to inspire discovery through innovation, hands-on experiences and exploratory play”. The Museum is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the state of Texas with a Board of Directors comprised of 12 community leaders who are passionate about bringing play-centered learning to Chambers County.

In November of 2019, the CCCM Board of Directors partnered with the new owners of the old Thrif-Tee Food Center building located at 10955 Eagle Drive in the heart of Mont Belvieu, TX for a free 15-year lease. By the Spring of 2021, the museum completed an extensive analysis of the current state of the building and began work with Mark W. Todd Architects to design the new space. The $4m renovation began on July 5th, 2022 and the general contractor, E & S Construction, is in its final weeks of construction. The Museum is blessed to have over 45 community sponsors and grants from three major foundations. Stay tuned for a grand opening date!
