About Stepping Stones Museum for Children
Stepping Stones opened in March 2000 and was founded by Gigi Priebe in response to the needs expressed by parents, educators, and community leaders actively seeking quality educational offerings to help children learn and grow. It’s a fun, colorful and engaging environment that recognizes the value of play in promoting learning, creativity and discovery. As a special place where children of all ages are encouraged to explore, invent, test and observe, the museum is a leading destination for schools, groups, families and anyone seeking a fun experience.
