Explore, Educate, Engage at Beaumont Children's Museum

Don’t you just love to see your young child explore and learn with enthusiasm? Recently the SETX Home School Science Fair was held at Beaumont Children’s Museum. Because they encourage home school families to take an active role in promoting their children’s growth and development in the science and technology fields, BCM sponsored this event and was a huge part of making it happen. While we were there, all the children (even the teens!) enjoyed the learning-through-playing activities that fill the museum. What an amazing place! It’s a hidden gem for southeast Texas educators, particularly home school families, who have great opportunity to use this resource all throughout the day.

This gets better! Beaumont Children’s Museum will be at the SETX Homeschool Expo June 22-23 with fun and exciting learning activities for your youngster. Visit their booth and their interactive children’s workshop and find out just how fun learning can be! 


​​BCM is a museum that believes in learning through playing. Their exhibits are carefully selected to promote a S.T.E.A.M. focused learning base (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). They strive to promote a fun and interactive environment where children thrive and get excited about learning.

Their  MISSION:Igniting the growth of children, families, and communities through interactive learning.
​Their VISION:  To encourage and inspire children to think for themselves, confidently ask questions, question answers, and understand the world around them.
