KidsQuest Children's Museum
KidsQuest Children's Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides hands-on education and experiences to children birth-8 years, located in Bellevue, Washington. Exhibits and classes are intended to encourage cognitive, physical and emotional development through play with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). 
KidsQuest Children's Museum was conceived in 1997 in response to a survey in Eastside Parents Magazine identifying a children's museum as the "most needed facility or service" for the communities east of Lake Washington.
The museum opened on December 11, 2005 in Factoria Mall in Bellevue and was designed to accommodate 60,000 visitors per year. As of 2014, the museum averages over 155,000 visitors per year, and has had over a million visitors since opening.
