Executive Director’s Message 

 

For more than 15 years, the Children’s Museum of Brownsville has been a central point of pride for our community, providing active, hands-on learning for children in a safe, welcoming, and interactive environment. 

Our commitment to the well-being of our patrons is our top priority. This starts with how we evaluate and train employees (including completing thorough background checks for every hire) as well as onboarding and training volunteers. At every step of the process, safety is at the forefront of everything we do at the museum. 

Recently, a former staff member of the museum was removed by authorities. We remain assured that no wrong doing occurred in the museum and are confident in our measures to keep families safe. 

In addition to ongoing surveillance, our practices and policies ensure our annual 60,000 patrons that the Children’s Museum of Brownsville continues to be a safe space to enjoy. We’re also gearing up for busy spring break and summer seasons as we’ve already had a great visitor turnout this year. 

Thank you for your continued support of our organization and our work to promote A World of Learning through the power of play. 

Sincerely, 

Felipe Pena III
Executive Director
