Mission & Vision

What is the Chambers County Children’s Museum?


To inspire discovery through innovation, hands on experiences, and exploratory play.

The Chambers County Children’s Museum includes almost 17,000 sq ft of interior play space for children ages 0-12 designed to inspire discovery through innovation, hands on experiences and exploratory play. The Museum interior is designed around a Main Street where Kids Rule! Featuring a construction site, bank, restaurant, grocery store, dental/ortho office, light room, doctor’s office and farm Main Street is the place to be. In the center of Main Street is our Oil and Natural Gas Park. Designed by Museum Designer Paul Bernhard Exhibits, the Oil & Natural Gas Park sponsored by Enterprise Products tells the story of oil & natural gas from location to extraction, refining, transportation and final products.

But wait – there’s more! The CCC Museum also has a fenced in out door area. The exterior exhibit area, “Recess!”, adds approximately 10,000 additional square feet for guests to enjoy. Highlights of the Recess! exterior space include a water wall, raised garden beds, a massive sand pit, a 12 foot alligator statue, a walk of wellness, scooter station, a custom Chambers County mural by Houston artist David Maldonado, and a unique climbing structure. The climbing structure, produced by Earth Scape, includes a play house, 2 climbing clouds, and a large ‘Log Tangle’ – the playground version/interpretation of a high-ropes course, where elevated triangular platforms connect via different obstacles.


Founded in August 2019, the Chambers County Children’s Museum is a registered is a non-profit, 501(c)3 charity in the state of Texas with a Board of Directors comprised of 8 community leaders who are passionate about bringing play-centered learning to Chambers County. The explosive growth of the area, primarily made of young families, is driving the need for more family and kid-centered activities and programs. The Chambers County Children’s Museum strives to fill that need by bringing unparalleled permanent exhibits, innovative season and rotating exhibits, and educational programming to our community

Map of Mont Belvieu and the pinned location of the Chambers County Children's Museum. In November of 2019, the group partnered with the new owners of the old Thrif-Tee Food Center located at 10955 Eagle Drive in the heart of Mont Belvieu, TX for a 15 year free lease. A lot has happened since then! We brought over 70 community partners on board to sponsor exhibits and we were awarded three separate grants from some incredible foundations. We hired an Executive Director, a Program Director, and our wonderful staff of Innovation Experts. We celebrated our Grand Opening on Saturday, June 24th, and are welcoming in guests Tuesday-Sunday.
