The Above & Beyond Children's Museum is a children's museum in downtown Sheboygan, Wisconsin. The museum has 3 floors of hands-on exhibits in over 10,000 feet of floor space.The museum is a member of the Association of Children's Museums.HistoryThe museum opened in 1998 and the window painting by volunteers was honored as a Make A Difference Day winner by USA Weekend.The museum has been struggling to stay current on its mortgage. The museum was $20,000 in debt in the summer of 2007, so it attempted to sell a vacant part of its lot to the City of Sheboygan for $10,000. A bank has a lien on the property, so the transaction has not taken place as of October 2007. The museum then partnered with the Sheboygan Area School District to create a Reusable Resource Center located in the lower floor of the museum. The center holds donated furniture and other resources, which teachers and parents will be able to use for hands-on lessons.

  • It was cold and snowy and so we decided on an indoor activity and so we liked the sound of ABOVE & BEYOND CHILDRENS MUSEUM. But "museum" is a misnomer and very misleading.Thankfully we had a 4-year ol...  more »

  • Tucked inside an older home, the museum is on 3 floors. Great for a rainy day activity. Not that large so pick a day when not crowded. Several interactive exhibits for kids (and adults) to do.  more »

  • We had a FANTASTIC time! I will be buying a yearly membership. Perfect for my grandson who has autism. He loves exploring all the different activities. He especially enjoyed the costumes with the stage area, fire truck section/complete with fireman clothing, sailing and the pretend fishing area. With so much to do, we played for hours! Very happy Sheboygan has a place like this!! Its a gem♡♡
  • Great place to bring the kids lots to do for kids even toddlers. They have most of the old equipment from the mall play zone. Kids can easily spend all day here and not get bored.
  • Nice children's museum. They could improve it by adding in scheduled events. I think they miss a lot of repeat business from locals because the kids are bored after 1 or 2 visits.
  • Excellent place to bring children of all ages. Plenty to do and learn from. Loved it!
  • We had a great time. My 2yo and 4yo both enjoyed and the guy at the desk gave fantastic customer service! We will be coming back!
