This summer, kids are experimenting, taking risks, problem solving and more as they step into the role of illustrator, storyteller and inventor in the Rube GoldbergTM: The World of Hilarious Invention! exhibit.
One of the museum’s most popular activities — Paint Your Own Face — provides such freedom and empowers kids to build creative thinking and social skills, confidence and coordination while they doodle, draw, color and create masterpieces on their own faces.
This summer, in addition to a plethora of fun-filled permanent exhibits, we have a great lineup of special experiences and events that shine a spotlight on creative and critical thinking — important skills that help kids go far in school and life.
Summer camps, sports practices, music lessons and maybe a road trip or two. Is your family’s summer schedule getting crowded? It’s a good time to remember to carve out time for good old-fashioned play – getting dirty, goofing off and making up your own rules.
