The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage has opened the “Centuries of Childhood: An American Story” exhibit, which is produced in partnership with the Children’s Museum of Cleveland and designed for children ages 2-8 years old.
On view through Aug. 27, 2017 the exhibit uses interactive, hands-on activities to chronicle the stories of five children and their families living in historical eras ranging from the 1700s to the mid-20th Century.
“Centuries of Childhood is a family-friendly exhibit that will especially appeal to children ages 2 through 8, who are just starting to learn about American history,” says Maltz Museum managing director David Schafer. “By chronicling the lives of these five characters, the exhibit helps kids connect the stories of American history to their own experiences and shows them how diverse backgrounds and experiences, as well as tolerance for differences, have helped the country grow and prosper.”
Admission to Centuries of Childhood is included with Maltz Museum admission at a special summer rate that applies through Labor Day: $10 adults, $5 children (5-11) and free for Maltz Museum Members and children under 5. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Wednesday 11 a.m.-9 p.m. (closed on Mondays).
