The minute that a children walk through the doors of this museum we want them to become explorers. Take a flashlight and search through the hidden passageways of an ancient tomb seeking out the treasure and the mummy. Go on a trip back in time in our time machine to places in our nations history or step into the future and join the crew of our spaceship on a journey across a distant galaxy. Dance to the music of the 1940s, 50s, 60s and 70s in our old soda fountain or join a parade down a street in a New Orleans neighborhood. Science demonstrations, art activities and puppet shows join exhibits and presentations that are all designed to reach children through their imaginations, to tap into their natural curiosity and to encourage them to see themselves as explorers.
