Climate change is the challenge of our time. We are launching a climate museum in New York City to rise to this challenge together. 

We need a fundamental shift in the way our culture relates to the climate challenge. If we allow climate silence to persist, our future will be gravely jeopardized. But if we cultivate a national community that is both educated about climate risks and collectively engaged with solutions, we will amplify and sustain climate progress.

The Climate Museum will be a public space where we can gather to learn about climate change, face our fears, share solutions, and commit to change. It will serve as a hub for education, leadership, and civic engagement, bringing people together to move toward climate solutions.
 


The Climate Museum’s mission is to employ the sciences, art, and design to inspire dialogue and innovation that address the challenges of climate change, moving solutions to the center of our shared public life and catalyzing broad community engagement.

 
 

Approach

The Climate Museum’s exhibitions and programs reflect these priorities:

invite PARTICIPATION

Accessible and dynamic, the Museum will inspire participation among diverse communities.

We are excited to be launching our first public programming. Next will come the establishment of a museum lab, which will show the value of offering such programming in a dedicated space, and allow us to test different approaches to climate exhibition. The museum lab will provide both continuity and momentum for a growing climate-engaged public.
 
The lab space will lead to a campaign for the Climate Museum’s permanent home in New York City. The Museum will be both transit-accessible and in the vanguard of sustainable design, with the capacity to accommodate one million visitors per year.
