My Review:

The museum is just doing so many things right!

  • A mobile library
  • An in museum library
  • Fun entrances to spaces
  • Layers of information
  • Spending money on theming as appropriate
  • Including Children’s Art
  • Cultural Galleries

Summary:

  • A collecting Museum
  • A “true” Children’s Museum in the model of the Brooklyn Children’s Museum (The first museum for children)
  • Excellent Exhibits
  • Lighting, painting, finishes could be improved
  • Issues of ergonomics, tables to tall, graphics hung too high
  • Exhibit cover a wide range of topics in a relatively small space
