One of the only "small-town" children's museums in the nation, the Black Earth Children's Museum (BECM) is a unique and enriching  place that inspires discovery, creativity and community!


Designed and built with input from the local community ,  BECM is truly a community space. Exhibits are designed with a focus on reflecting the local culture and environment to promote learning and appreciation. The museum  offers engaging and unique play experiences  throughout 7,000 square feet of  the historic Patron's Mercantile  Co-Op Building. 

BECM's exhibits are designed primarily for children ages birth to 10 but offer  excitement for all ages!
