Meet the tag! team

tag! Children’s Museum answers a long unmet need in St. Augustine and St. John’s County for a children’s museum that will celebrate play and creativity; provide activities that nurture family relationships; establish common ground in communities; and collaborate with other nonprofit and educational organizations to help build creative communities that improve the quality of life and child-friendly communities.

Meet the team leading this effort and who are supported by donors, partners, foundations and families living in our communities.
