Boston is synonymous with culture, art and history. There are many museums in and around Boston, including the Boston Children's Museum, which is sure to be a hit with your children.
Celebrating their 100th anniversary, making them the second oldest children's museums in the country, the Boston's Children's Museum was also named as one of the most influential children's museums in the world. The idea for the museum was first developed in 1909, and the museum was finally organized in 1913 by a group of teachers who were determined to bring science to kids, the Science Teacher's Bureau's goal was mainly to make learning fun and interesting.
There are over fifty-thousand items on display. Exhibits at the museum are hands-on, interactive, and designed to engage children and help them understand science. Through these exhibits, kids become more informed about arts and culture, earth science, and life science.
The Buffalo Children's Museum offers programs and camps throughout the year which helps kids maintain their interest in learning even when they're out of school for the summer. Two other children's museums - the Museo Pambata in Manila, Philippines, and Le Musée des Enfants in Brussels, Belgium - have been inspired by the success and popularity of the Boston Children's Museum.
