Finally, a museum kids have been waiting for. Instead of being told not to touch, this museum is totally hands on and encourages kids to be interactive and playful. Along with great, enthusiastic staff, the Children’s Museum of Manhattan is a place kids have to try out because it is a place they will love.
The museum inspires children and families to learn about themselves and the culturally diverse world we live in, in a fun environment with interactive exhibitions and programs. It emphasizes early childhood education and development, not just for kids to learn but parents will also achieve a greater understanding for how kids learn. Within the four floors of the building it contains all varieties of toys and a great reading area to keep those little tykes busy for a while.
The variety of shows that take place in the museum range from arts and crafts to simply make believe that are inspired by their favourite cartoon characters and television shows. It also contains discovery centres for toddlers, a media centre where techno savvy kids can work in a fun TV studio and the Inventor Centre, where all the latest, cool tech stuff like digital imaging and scanners are ready to be used. Art workshops, science programs, and storytelling sessions are held here daily. The Childrens Museum of Manhattan is a sure fire way to bring a smile to the faces of many children.
