Our mission is to inspire action on the climate crisis with programming across the arts and sciences that deepens understanding, builds connections, and advances just solutions. Mobilizing the popularity and trust held by museums, we bring people together to learn and to join the fight for a brighter future through pathways that include interdisciplinary exhibitions, art installations, interactive panels, performances, science events, youth programs, and more.
Most people in the US are worried about the climate crisis, with awareness and anxiety now at record levels, but this majority has remained largely silent and inactive. The Climate Museum creates an inclusive, equity-centered culture for action on climate. Cultural engagement helps people turn away from resignation toward their own courage, connectedness, and agency; our visitors emphatically express the value of this work.
Over the last four years, the Museum has presented six exhibitions and more than 200 events; engaged 330 high school students in leadership, advocacy, and arts programs, and welcomed more than 81,000 visitors in person and 200,000 visitors online. We have collaborated with organizations ranging from municipal departments to international scientific research consortia to local community justice organizations. Our work has been supported by major arts and educational funders and favorably featured in peer-reviewed museum publications and respected mainstream media outlets. What we do has helped to spark a global move toward cultural work on the climate crisis.
Building on what we’ve learned and our record of success, we have now launched an initiative to scale the Climate Museum out to year-round space to make our pathbreaking work more accessible to more people. This vision is depicted in a sketch imagined by the architects at FXCollaborative above.
As the climate crisis intensifies, so does the need for communal spaces where we can all gain understanding and resolve. The Climate Museum will make inclusive dialogue and immersive cultural programming on climate accessible to a broad public. Join us.
