Our History

​KJ and Craig Morris, together with the support of over 100 local families and donors, opened the doors of the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum in November 2011. Inspired by the value of creative and play. Craig & KJ noticed an opportunities for the community to better serve children so they might thrive during the cold winter months of Jackson.
