Peaceful City

This mindfulness exhibit offers yoga and meditation based activities for the whole family.

Curious Tales

Stories of the World will feature a puppet theatre with a 20×8 ft stage. Kids will be able to act and play out folk-tale characters!


Planned inconjunction with the Essex Agricultural Society, this exhibit used agricultural education and the USDA “My Plate” model to help children discover the importance of a fresh, healthy diet.

Generous City

Who doesn’t love playing with money? This exhibit includes a Bank playhouse where children can take turns playing the role of the teller or the customer, access the faux vault, visit the drive-up window, or, if they are in a hurry, there’s always the ATM. George Peabody would be so proud!

Cozy City

This sensory exhibit provides a safe, relaxing space for children of all abilities who may become overwhelmed or overstimulated by their exploration of the museum as a whole.

Curious World

What will you find in the Geography exhibit? Maps, globes, and a play area to ”visit” the rainforest, desert, oceans and the Arctic.

Discovery City


Ramps, wheels, axles, magnets, planks, blocks… there’s no limit to what engineers, artists, and builders can make as they investigate, tinker and immerse themselves in STEAM exploration.


Concepts such as flight, air current, air resistance, and gravity are explored through play and hands-on investigation.


Families will be able to learn about our habitat in the Natural History room. Examine rock, fossil and mineral samples, fossil blocks, magnification station, life-size animal track books and play the ‘match a track’ game.
