We’ve been honored to inspire children from DC and beyond to care about and change the world for nearly 50 years. On November 2, 2023, we’ll celebrate the community that has made this work possible with an evening that reflects the joys of childhood: imagination, play, and, of course, dreams!

An elegant dinner will be held in the Ronald Reagan Building to honor one of the Museum’s founding Trustees and former Board Chair, Dick Snowdon. A 21+ soirée in the Museum will follow, featuring signature cocktails, culinary delights, dancing, music, exhibit play, and much more.

Proceeds from the Dreamers Soirée will support the Museum’s interactive exhibits, hands-on programs, and access initiatives, all of which empower the next generation of innovators.
