Stepping Stones was founded by Gigi Priebe in order to create a space where children can learn and grow through various offerings. Aside from permanent exhibitions, Stepping Stones also features other spaces like an “Express Yourself” room where children are free to become whoever or whatever they want to be.

2. Stepping Stones is certified green.

And we mean that in a good way. The Stepping Stones facility was awarded a LEED Gold certification for being an environment-friendly establishment. Solar panels and a wind turbine help power the museum, while a green roof helps maintain air temperatures in the building and provide city habitat for some local wildlife.

3. Stepping Stones encourages learning through play.

Wise men and women have said that learning goes beyond the four walls of a classroom. It’s also not just about books and homework. Stepping Stones has created an environment that encourages children ten years old and under to foster their talents and interests through play, programs, exhibits, and partnerships with likeminded organizations.

4. It’s a great events place.

If you have children, you might want to consider Stepping Stones as the venue of your child’s birthday party. The facility offers a birthday party package that includes admission for up to 30 children and adults and other freebies. For more information, check out this page.

5. Stepping Stones offers quality time with the family.

No matter your age, Stepping Stones has created a facility where you can enjoy with the whole family. After all, you learn something new each day, regardless of age and size.
