Explore it! Children's Museum received a grant from the Fredericksburg Area Service League (FASL) in 2012 in the amount of $3,500 and in 2013 for $3,520 to add an art station to their existing traveling exhibits. Explore it! will also receive a $4,000 grant to purchase the SNUG play system in 2014.

These grants have allowed Explore it! to enhance their traveling exhibits by adding art projects that relate to the exhibits. The SNUG play system will add to the Build it! exhibit and will be used in the permanent location.

Explore it! was also chosen as a placement for FASL for the 2011 - 2014 years. The members of FASL will volunteer to assist Explore it! at local children's events throughout the year. We would like to thank the Fredericksburg Area Service League for their continued support!

Cobblestone Children's Museum Partners with UMW Business Class

Cobblestone partnered with the UMW Business School under Dr. Alan Heffner during the Fall 2010 semester. In Dr. Heffner's Strategic Management class, groups of students evaluated the museum's progress and prepared strategic plans for the museum. The information obtained from the class has been extremely helpful to the museum in developing future plans and strategies. We would like to thank UMW and Dr. Heffner for their support and assistance with this project!
