About Us

What is Playzeum?

Playzeum is a breakthrough concept conceived and designed to bring the play museum experience to children who need it most with play spaces that encourage child-directed, spontaneous, loose parts play – the kind of play that is critical to nurturing young children’s creativity, teaching problem solving and developing literacy.

Serving our Local Community

Playzeum’s Museum Without Walls exhibits and activities are designed to meet the needs of Fresno and Madera County’s youngest children at all stages of development, with a goal toward creating a legacy of learning for every child in our community.

A TEAM dedicated to the children in our community

The founders of Playzeum share a belief in the importance of quality, child-directed play experiences for young children as a foundation for literacy and future success.
