The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage will feature a summer installation for younger audiences. In lieu of a special exhibition, the Everyday Heroes Activity Center will be in the open space, inviting children to discover their own everyday superpowers — such as kindness, compassion, listening and helping.
The Everyday Heroes Activity Center will be open during regular museum hours, June 5 through August 12.
The activity center will feature interactive stations where children can enjoy books, crafts, movement and more — all while exploring the themes of being an everyday hero. Examples include:
- Make your own capes and masks
- Zoom around the good mood movement area
- Paint kindness rocks to give and share
- Build a better world with jumbo Legos
- Be the hero of your own story at the puppet theater
In addition, guests can participate in an Everyday Hero StoryWalk, which is a self-guided, hands-on tour using a children’s book to explore the museum’s core exhibition, An American Story. Discover heroic qualities of families moving to a new country on this newly designed tour created to engage younger audiences. Offered every Tuesday and Sunday at 2 p.m., starting June 5.
Additional drop-in tours also will be offered throughout the summer, including An American Story, The Temple-Tifereth Israel Gallery, and Themes of the Holocaust. These tours are recommended for ages 12 and up.
Special summer pricing offers reduced rates for admission: General (ages 12+) $10; Youth (ages 5-11) $5; Children under 5 are Free. Members are always free. New household memberships are just $55 when joining June through August.
