Exhibits in the Museum

The museum has a variety of activity centers to occupy children’s attention for hours. The museum staff is constantly adding new interactional exhibits for children to discover.

Welcome to Pirate Island

Upon our very own pirate ship, the fantasy world of pirate adventures comes to life with interactive games, stories, theater shows and even some pirates! Children learn to speak Pirate with phrases like “Yo Ho Ho”, “Davey Jones Locker”, and “Shiver Me Timbers!” Everyone gets a map to follow that leads to the hidden treasure.

The Pirate Ship and Fort, an outdoor exhibit created by “The Imagineer” Adrian St. Cyr, is always ready for an imaginary adventure.

The Bank & Post Office

In this room, children pretend to be bank tellers and customers with plastic coins, paper money, checks, and credit cards. Completing an age-appropriate math activity earns children a key to open a safe deposit box and choose a prize. In the Post Office corner, young mail carriers put on a postal uniform, collect envelopes from a mail sorter, and deliver them around the Museum.

Puppet Theater and Storytelling Stage

A puppet theater and storytelling stage invites children ages one and up to engage in imaginative play, build oral vocabulary and communication skills, find an outlet for expressing emotions, and so much more. To the left of the stage, a puppetry arts station gives children an opportunity to learn how to make different types of puppets that they can use in their performances. A collection of folktales and interesting picture books provides inspiration and a starting point for storytelling.

The Grocery Store

In this store, young children learn about making healthy food choices as they shop the variety of produce and healthy play food options with their miniature grocery carts. Families work together to set tables with play food inspired by the USDA’s MyPlate system. Parents can find literature encouraging them in their pursuit of raising healthy eaters. Older children and parents learn about the environment in this area as they play a game that teaches about reducing waste and choosing reusable and recyclable packaging.

Displays change regularly including a marble run activity, mechanical toys demonstrations that incorporate the use of simple machines, building and construction toys, and a science “lab” table with microscopes, magnets, and more.

Wanna Be Square

In this square, children dress up as community helpers such as firefighters, police officers, librarians, doctors, and teachers. They are provided with books and activities to stimulate their experiences acting out what they want to be when they grow-up. This area introduces children to real-life skills through specific vocational activities and imaginative play.

Health Care Center

What child doesn’t like to play doctor? In this area, we will create a health care center stocked with make-believe medical equipment, bones, skeletons, model parts of the body and other age-appropriate learning tools that teach children about a “healthy me.”
