Exhibits

The Children’s Museum features nine permanent exhibits. Each exhibit not only entertains but also teaches children by exposing them to concepts, skills, and information. All of the exhibits offer age-appropriate activities designed to support the learning that is taking place in the home and partner with the curriculum that is used in the schools.

Targeted towards children ranging in age from 2 to 10 years old, the focus is on play, discovery, learning, and exploration.
