Community Highlight – The KidZone Museum

The KidZone Museum is a children's museum in Truckee, California with a mission to ‘inspire learning through creative play and discovery.’

Kidzone opened its doors to the Truckee community in 1992. Families were yearning for an engaging learning place to take their children to play and meet up and connect with other families during the winter months. With a current audience of 22,000 visits a year, the kidzone provides a space for families of all socio-economic backgrounds from around the Truckee-Tahoe region and as far as the Bay Area. 

Kidzone focuses on its mission by providing early-learning programs and interactive exhibits that focus on healthy development of children and offer families the tools necessary to share learning opportunities together. They also provide the space for children to think deeply and innovate creatively through playful open-ended exhibits and programs. 

Truckee-Tahoe Lumber is proud to be a supporter of the new Fairy tale-themed “Once Upon A Time … In A Kingdom Far Away” exhibition. The interactive exhibit features a castle, a stage with working lights and curtains, a cottage in the wood and a ship, built by 60 volunteers who put in 1,000 hours of time building, plus a year of planning and about $37,000 in gifts and donations.
