Framed: Step into Art
Saturday, September 21, 2019 - Sunday, January 5, 2020
Step inside the framework of famous paintings and experience art like never before in Framed: Step into Art. Children and adults can enjoy a robust noontime meal in Grant Wood's Dinner for Threshers, climb into a tent and explore camping gear in John Singer Sargent's Camp at Lake O'Hara and add "corn husks" to the flower tower in Diego Rivera's Corn Festival. Enter Clementine Hunter's Big Chicken and get behind the reins of a giant rooster. Visitors can explore a small collection of Mona Lisa prints featuring the original and famous parodies, then step behind a cutout version and replace Mona Lisa's face with their own.
Framed: Step into Art was created by Minnesota Children's Museum.
Take a trip to Kenya in the upcoming exhibit Kenya's Kids!
Saturday, January 18 - Sunday, May 25, 2020
Take a trip to Kenya in 2020 when Creative Discovery Museum hosts Kenya's Kids. This unique exhibit was created by The Magic House St. Louis Children's Museum and invites families to discover what life is like for children in Kenya today, a country both technologically-advanced and filled with longtime traditions. As they travel through five immersive environments, children can compare the similarities and differences between their lives and those of children in the East African country of Kenya.
In Kenya's Kids, visitors can
- Experience a rural home and learn about water conservation
- Use a beautiful Khanga cloth to carry a baby on their back
- Dress as a Maasai, one of 43 ethnic groups in Kenya
- Learn Swahili using touchscreen notebooks just like students in Kenya in the school
- Convert dollars to shillings and "shop" in an outdoor market and at a duka, tiny shops found throughout Kenya
- Become a ranger and drive a safari vehicle to learn about the animals that live on Kenya's vast savanna at the national reserve
- Become a keeper at an elephant orphanage that cares for abandoned baby animals and learn about animal conservation
Kenya's Kids was created by The Magic House, St. Louis Children's Museum.
