Beginning March 31st, CuriousCity will be located within the George Peabody House and Leather Workers Museum located at 205 Washington Street. All exhibits will be hands-on and play-based and include components that focus on STEAM education, literacy and adult/child interaction for children ages 2-10. CuriousCity is also dedicated to creating a museum experience that is accessible to children of all backgrounds and abilities.
Peabody has experienced success using the temporary, “pop up” approach to test out ideas for potential businesses. Our goal is that the success of CuriousCity will demonstrate that a permanent children’s museum can be a successful venture so that the children of Essex County will have permanent access to a play-based space devoted to learning and the healthy development of children and families in our community.
