Community Partnerships

Become a Community Partner!

Because of your proud support, OH WOW! is the premier children’s science museum in NE Ohio and Western PA. We continue to help children become better prepared for their future by “EDUTAINING THEIR BRAINS”.

Our annual report highlighting our 2016 successes is now available. Our primary source of income is earned income which comes largely from general admission, field trips, outreach activities, birthday party rentals, memberships and membership renewals. Your referrals to friends, family and colleagues have resulted in significant growth in these areas. Thank you! Annual Report 2016

OH WOW! is also grateful for the 37% of our 2016 revenue that came from you, and people like you. Because of your investment in our mission, OH WOW! continues to offer a high-quality, world-class EDUtaining experience at a reasonable family-friendly price. Thank you! A complete list of our community partners can be found below.

We invite you to make a tax-deductible donation in 2017 that will help us to continue our mission, and appreciate your consideration.
