Formed in January 2011 by a group of parents, EverWonder Children’s Museum (incorporated as Newtown Children’s Museum, Inc.) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring children and families in northern Fairfield County through the use of hands-on museum exhibits and demonstrations.
EverWonder encourages guests to explore the beauty and wonder of science through hands-on experimentation. Many of its permanent exhibits were developed by the Sciencenter of Ithaca, N.Y., and Rochester Museum & Science Center, also in Rochester, with funding from the National Science Foundation.
They include Visible Sound String, Theramin Sound Instrument, Windy Wonders, Three-Wheeled Racer Car Track, Magnet Table, Tornado Tubes, Swinging Art Harmonograph, Giant Pendulum, Swinging Pendulums, and Dancing Wall.
In addition, through September 30, the lighthouse that serves as the signature icon for Ben’s Lighthouse is on view at the museum.
