What is a Children's Museum?
Unlike traditional museums, children’s museums focus on interactive exhibits and learning through creativity and experimentation. People are encouraged to touch installations, use their imaginations, and explore their surroundings. The guiding principle behind children’s museums is the idea that PLAY IS LEARNING. By providing safe spaces to engage in, people have the opportunity to build skills that foster creative thinking and innovation. Children’s museums also act as local destinations and as community resources, elevating local economies and providing social services & advocacy for children.
