KidZone Museum starts capital campaign


KidZone Museum has announced plans to raise $13 million to expand and relocate to a larger space in Truckee. The capital campaign, called Full Steam Ahead, has raised $4.5 million in its preliminary efforts. KidZone Museum has evolved into a nationally recognized institution that provides stimulating experiences to families from diverse backgrounds. Despite its success, the museum has faced critical challenges, including the deteriorating condition of its current tent structure and limitations in accommodating the growing demand for its services.

To address these challenges, KidZone Museum plans to build a new 10,500-square-foot museum and science center, along with a 5,000-square-foot outdoor space at Truckee River Regional Park. This expansion will provide a larger and more sustainable building and allow the museum to serve more children. To donate, contact Jen Parker at (530) 945-5856 or|
