Kids Oneida and the Utica Children's Museum are teaming up.

The two organizations have entered into a management contract relationship.

Kids Oneida will be providing operational and administrative support, development and marketing support and strategic planning for the museum.

Kids Oneida executive director Steve Bulger believes this is absolutely the right move for his organization. “Kids Oneida has been supporting kids and families for twenty years and it is within our mission to partner with an entity that provides joy, education and discovery for them. We have depth and expertise in our staff and many resources that will benefit the Museum greatly. Having our headquarters right across the street from the Museum is an added bonus.”

The contractual relationship is supported by the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties.

The Foundation is also providing multi-year funding for the effort.
