Guest Post: Children's Museum in PWC!!

Imagine a place where interactive exhibits and diverse educational programs spark curiosity, creativity and lifelong learning for children, their families and the community that supports them.  This is the mission of Discovery Junction Children's Museum, an emerging museum in Prince William County.
We are a group of educators, business professionals, and parents who live, work, and play in Prince William County.  We believe that the children in our community deserve a space devoted to their physical and intellectual development through the most natural activity of childhood, play.  We want a place that celebrates children for who they are but also allows them to dream about who they may become.  Families should have a place to spend the day together where creative interactions and learning opportunities are present in each moment.  Teachers need a local destination for field trips that will complement and reinforce the curriculum being taught in their classrooms.  We are excited to bring Discovery Junction Children's Museum to Prince William County to serve those purposes.  We would love to have you join us in making it happen!
How can you help?  In the near future there will many volunteer opportunities but in the mean time you can learn more about Discovery Junction by visiting our website at www.discoveryjunction.org.  Help us spread the word by following us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Discovery-Junction-Childrens-Museum/374497385894306, and share our page with your friends.​  Visit us on July 10th at Manassas Mall for Movers and Shakers where your children can interact with our first activity, Magnetic Creations.
Most importantly, support our first fundraiser being held on Friday, June 28th and Saturday, June 29th at the Evergreen Fire Department in Haymarket, VA.  We are holding Antiquities Children Portraits.  For $10 your child(ren) will get a 20min photo session with vintage clothing and props and an 8x10 classic vintage portrait.  You can choose to purchase additional photos in packages but no additional purchase is required.  Please visit http://www.discoveryjunction.org/#!antiquities/c1tik to learn more or send any questions to info@discoveryjunction.org
We look forward to working with you to bring Discovery Junction Children’s Museum to Prince William County!


  1. So excited and eager to help! What times are the photo sessions?

  2. Amy, thanks for your interest in helping DJCM! On our website http://www.discoveryjunction.org/#!antiquities/c1tik you will see more information regarding the fundraiser. There are also links to PayPal (so that you can make your $10 payment) as well as a link to Sign-up Genius (where you can select from any of the open slots)! We look forward to meeting you!

  3. Is ok to bring a big group of kids? My mother is a daycare manager and the families would like to have their kids pictures taken. There are 30 kids in the daycare.

  4. Tanya, what a great idea! I'm sure that we can work something out. When you get a moment send an email to cberger@discoveryjunction.org with your contact information and we'll work with you to make this happen. Thank you so much and we look forward to hearing from you.
