Organization Description

A 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization founded in 2002, the Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples (CMON) is a brain-building powerhouse and Southwest Florida’s first museum devoted to children and families. This safe and wonderful place inspires children and families to have fun while learning together.

CMON is a two-story, 30,000 square foot cultural institution including permanent and temporary interactive, fully accessible exhibits that blend state-of-the-art technology with a replication of the natural world and human communities. Developed by experts in child psychology, this experimental play fosters creativity, curiosity, empathy, and self-esteem.


Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples is proud to share that we hold both a 4-Star Rating from Charity Navigator and Gold Transparency on Guidestar. These high ratings are a result of an in-depth look at the organization and inspire confidence that CMON is a strong, financially healthy, and transparent non-profit.


The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples believes it is a privilege to share life with a child and is committed to nurturing bonds among families and generations. We celebrate the natural curiosity of children by offering a dynamic educational space that encourages exploration and discovery. This safe and wonderful place inspires children and families to have fun while learning together.
