Erica Sunde and her nearly two-year-old daughter Sloane received a museum membership as a gift about a year ago. It’s been a gift that keeps on giving as it has provided this dynamic duo with unlimited fun for a whole year.
Our members are like family to us. We get to meet them and see them on a regular basis and watch their families and kids grow. It’s one of the best parts about working here. We occasionally get the chance to highlight some of our members and the unique personalities and talents they bring to our community. One member who all of our staff know is Taj or, as he’s affectionately known around here, “Ukulele Dad.”
Erica Villanueva and her family have been members of Minnesota Children’s Museum for at least three years. We recently asked Erica some questions about her family, their experiences at the museum and what play means to them. We loved her answers!
Giant games, board games, an interactive dancing game have taken over The Landing just in time for the cold winter months. The museum developed this experience in collaboration with the Center for Hmong Arts & Talent (CHAT), which provided content ideas, visual design elements and overall input and consultation.
