Inside the museum
Parents and caregivers have the opportunity to play with their children through our family programs in order to learn something new for themselves and their relationship, to be "lost" in the game of discovery away from the distractions of everyday life. At Exploration Children's Museum we recognize the value of the family and enhance learning between the child and the adult, by creating transformational memorable family learning experiences across the sciences, arts and humanities that promote family engagement through the use of real objects, immersive environments, and live interpretation.
"Inside the museum" is our new educational program for families with children from 5 to 8 years old. What is a museum? What can we do with our family inside a museum? How many different types of museums can we visit? Children with their parents discover the meaning of "museum" by observing and exploring everyday objects, copies and authentic artifacts. Becoming museologists, conservationists, tour guides, and visitors, they make their own exhibitions and guide us in their own unique way. Exploring Exploration Children’s Museum’s collection, families imagine how it would be their own museum, their own children’s museum.
