Spark City Children’s Museum is a non-profit organization in Jefferson County, Colorado, whose mission is to provide a safe, engaging environment that sparks the intellectual and creative curiosity of young children.
Jefferson County has so many wonderful things for children to do! Not only do we have thousands of acres of beautiful outdoor spaces and parks, but Jefferson County is home to several fantastic kid-friendly museums like the Colorado Railroad Museum and Dinosaur Ridge.
We want to create an incredible addition to our community - a hands-on, participatory place for young children to learn by experience, explore multiple solutions to different problems, and develop a lifelong love of learning; a place solely dedicated to the young child and their adventurous spirit.
"EDUCATION IS NOT THE FILLING OF A BUCKET, BUT THE LIGHTING OF A FIRE."

THE Spark City Bus
The Spark City Bus is a beautiful 40-foot school bus that has been converted into a mobile children's museum! With our rotating interactive exhibits, kids get to try life on for size! Whether it is our farm to table theme, or our Little Clinic theme, young children have the opportunity to role-play with their peers. Not only is this a ton of fun, but it teaches valuable social and emotional skills, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, gross and fine motor skills, science, math and art skills, and most importantly-- it is instilling a lifelong love of learning through PLAY.
We are currently accepting reservations for in-house preschool field trips, birthday parties, company picnics, neighborhood block parties, family reunions, etc. Please email or call us to reserve your date!
