Playologists at the Children’s Museum of Phoenix

The Museum employs more than 30 Museum floor staff whom we playfully call “Playologists”. These hard-working, play-seeking individuals, many with backgrounds in early childhood development and education, are trained to assist our visitors in having the best time possible and more importantly, to facilitate play! You will find them stationed throughout the Museum in the Museum’s signature uniform of Turquoise polo shirts and khaki pants.

Museum admin staff email addresses are constructed as follows: first letter of first name + last name @ childmusephx.org.  For example John Smith (jsmith@childmusephx.org)
