About Habitot Children's Museum

Habitot Children's Museum was founded in 1992 to meet the unique needs of infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Habitot’s mission is to help the broad community of parents and caregivers raise curious, creative and confident children with dedicated programs for children with special needs, teen parents, formerly incarcerated mothers, and homeless families. Hands-on exhibits and programs focus exclusively on early childhood, ages 0-5.

Since opening 16 years ago in 1998, Habitot has welcomed over 1,050,000 visitors, filling a niche for new parents and caregivers who seek safe and enriching experiences for young children, with parenting support, a toy lending library, affordable music and art classes, immersive learning exhibits, and a drop-in Art Studio.

Habitot Children's Museum has been recognized as the "best museum for families" by Bay Area Parent Magazine readers. In addition, Habitot's founder, Gina Moreland, has been honored with a Bay Area "Jefferson Award", and was the City of Berkeley's "Early Childhood Champion of the Year." In 2011, 2012 and 2013, Parents' Press readers voted Habitot "Best of the East Bay," and in 2013 Habitot received the GuideStar Exchange Silver participation level, a leading symbol of transparency and accountability provided by GuideStar USA, Inc., the premier source of nonprofit information. In 2010, 2011 and in 2012, Habitot was designated a "Top-Rated Non-profit" by GreatNonprofits, a leading provider of reviews and ratings of nonprofit organizations.
