We Wholeheartedly Believe In The Value Of Play

At Zing Zumm, Children's Museum of Jacksonville, our mission is to engage all children through hands-on learning experiences that promote play, inspire imagination, foster creativity, and spark exploration in a fun, family friendly environment. We encourage children's love of learning and exploration via fun, engaging, and interactive exhibits and events. We work hard to create a warm and friendly environment where kids may learn new things, gain useful skills, and form deep bonds with their families and the community. Children of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities should develop a lifelong love of learning, creativity, and curiosity. Our goal is to improve the lives of children and families in our neighborhood and beyond by collaborating with our partners and stakeholders.
