The Museum-on-the-Go is a mobile museum on wheels, which started two years ago as a way of raising awareness and support for a children’s museum in Sonoma County. From it’s humble beginnings at the Petaluma Movies in the Park events where it was basically a table with a few activities – it has grown in size to more than 11 exhibits and activities focused on science and the arts.
Exhibits range in subject matter from magnetism to hydrodynamics to air pressure to expressing oneself through face painting. All exhibits work towards the mission of igniting imagination, cultivating creativity, and nurturing curiosity. For a more detailed listing and description of exhibits, please see our EXHIBITS
In 2007 and 2008, the Museum-on-the-Go served over 5000 children – with an average of 166 children per event. We logged over 1000 volunteer hours and are so very proud of the 30 volunteers who dedicated so much of their time to the vision and mission of a children’s museum. Without their tireless efforts, the Children’s Museum of the North Bay simply would not exist.
