About Oneonta World of Learning:
Oneonta World of Learning (OWL) is a children's museum in search of walls, registered with the New York State Board of Regents, and a 501c3 not for profit organization.
The museum has brought together a coalition of volunteer parents, artists, educators and other local professionals, dedicated to a common goal. While we do not yet have a permanent location, we are known for collaborative family friendly events such as Paintfest!, the Ice Cream Social, and Science Saturdays.
A children's museum is not a museum in the classic sense. Exhibits are meant to be hands on, with engaging, kid-friendly activities. Oneonta World of Learning will be a community resource providing an interactive and engaging environment for play and exploration. The number of potential exhibits is countless, but will be designed to foster parent child interaction, learning through play, and clear educational goals.
We envision a world where children will grow to be creative, confident, and caring members of society by discovering the essential components of community. Children will become active problem-solvers through invention and guided play. Far from being controlled play, guided play simply means that a minimum of inspiration, ideas, or parameters will be provided to engage children’s interest in an activity.
