Through a unique environment of interactive exhibitions, classes, workshops, performances and Museum-sponsored festivals, children have fun while getting inspired to learn about the world around them. But the kids aren't the only ones who benefit: by watching their young'uns, parents come to a greater understanding about how children learn."   For information about the Museum Click Here http://cmom.org/
