MUSEUM OF

MAKERS + INNOVATORS

  WHERE ART + SCIENCE + NATURE = AWESOMENESS  

Building a Museum for New Jersey's Future Innovators

MOMI is creating a destination for S.T.E.A.M. and maker-based learning! We want to build a new kind of children's museum that connects art, science, and nature. MOMI will be the premier destination in Northern New Jersey for playful, hands-on experiences for the entire family.


Museums all across the country have inspired MOMI’s vision to bring a museum experience like no other in New Jersey - one that fuels the imagination and leads to innovation. Please join us in creating something special. Just Think.

Big Dreams. Big Plans.

Museum of Makers + Innovator’s mission is to build a museum that sparks curiosity and wonder, and ignites the lifelong love of learning. MOMI is in response to the need for more equitable and inclusive learning opportunities for children and their families.

 

Our plan is to create a place for innovative, experiential learning that connects creativity with science and nature. We plan to build a museum of the future with indoor and outdoor exhibits that will inspire the next generation to dream big and think even bigger. 

Building a new museum will take planning and perseverance. We have just begun the journey and need support of the entire community to move forward with our vision.

MOMI Thinkscape at Morris Marketplace
NOW OPEN!

Serving communities across Morris, Somerset, Union and Essex county, the MOMI Thinkscape at Morris Marketplace integrates playful learning into the design of a pocket park and offers a unique approach to urban planning by incorporating child-friendly design and learning through play.

The pocket park nestled in Morris Township is designed for multigenerational learning and to create a community gathering space that builds connections and inspires learning in a new innovative way.

What Does S.T.E.A.M. Mean, Anyway?

Science Class

Explores the natural world through observation and experimentation.

Applies scientific knowledge to create practical inventions.

Designs and builds structures, machines, and systems.

Expresses ideas and emotions through creative mediums.

Boy

Uses logic and numbers to solve problems and understand relationships.

MOMI believes S.T.E.A.M. is more valuable than S.T.E.M for childhood learning because it incorporates the arts, which helps to foster creativity and innovation in addition to the technical skills gained through science, technology, engineering, and math.
