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.

  • My son and I played hide and seek. We had plenty of great places to hide. The circus attraction is nice. The new shadow play area is super cool.
  • Kids love this place, lots of stuff for them to play with. Fully stocked play kitchen, huge display of a carnival/circus that's interactive, fire truck, school house, ship and more
  • I had not been here since I was in highschool and was pleasantly surprised at all the new exhibits! My little girl and her cousins loved it!!!
  • What a great time. My family just committed to the family pass -- more then worth its money. Support this great organization!
