Bootheel Youth Museum - Malden, MO

The Bootheel Youth Museum in Malden, Missouri, offers children exciting, inventive (and educational) fun! Where else can you stand inside a bubble, "freeze" your shadow on a wall, write a check at the bank or make music on sewer pipes? These are just a few of the experiences you'll enjoy at the BYM!

Thousands of visitors have experienced the museum's many exhibits exploring the worlds of math, science, human relations, natural resources and the arts. This Island Mars features over 20 interactive exhibits and an innovative visit to the Red Planet. Visit the construction zone, which encourages creative building skills. There are fun activities for the child in all of us!

The Bootheel Youth Museum offers several other programs in addition to our 22,000-square-foot exhibit hall and 200-seat theater. The museum hosts field trips, birthday parties and more! Our traveling museum can be set up at schools and events within a 100-mile radius. You can come to us in Malden or we'll come to you!
