Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees at Boston Children's Museum supports the mission, vision and work of the Museum by engaging in Museum programs and events, advising on the management of the staff and facilities, providing fiscal support and by acting as advocates for the Museum in the community. Our Board is comprised of members from a variety of areas of expertise, backgrounds and interests. In addition to Boston Children's Museum's 24 current Trustees is a Board of 25 Honorary Trustees.

Trustees attend board meetings throughout the year, a Board Retreat and the Board Annual Meeting. All members also are involved in at least one committee. Trustees also assist in the recruitment of additional members to add to the diversity of the Board, by inviting community members, colleagues and friends with an interest in the advocacy of children, play and early child development to become involved.

Board of Overseers

The Board of Overseers at Boston Children's Museum serves a fundamental role in supporting Boston Children's Museum in its mission and vision. The Overseers act as a group uniquely situated to help the Museum establish and maintain essential community connections and partnerships, to seek resources and financial support for the Museum from individuals and businesses, and to demonstrate personal leadership in educating others about the Museum's work and philosophy. In so doing, the Overseers foster the Museum's support of parents, caregivers, educators, civic leaders and others—in our diverse community and beyond—who are addressing vital issues facing children. The Board of Overseers is currently comprised of 21 members, and most recently hosted a Lunch and Learn at the Museum with a discussion by Dr. Robert Brooks on “Raising Resilient Children.”
