Each of the programs and exhibitions at the Museum is designed with the goal of increasing curiosity and learning. For children who visit with their families and schools, the Museum has developed strategies to make learning fun by employing hands-on, participatory activities which engage and focus young visitors. In the Becker Children’s Wing, learning is an active process and exhibitions are designed to offer children an interactive engagement with a subject. Visitors can begin their tour with an orientation in our amphitheater, explore the exhibition, experiment with many hands-on activities and visit the children’s gift shop. The WonderWing is designed for early childhood education with elements that stimulate curiosity, enhance understanding, and draw young visitors to experiment, imagine, explore and discover.
