The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage is proud to announce a summer installation for younger audiences. Back by popular demand, The Everyday Heroes Activity Center will open for the second year in the museum’s special exhibition gallery space.
Children are invited to discover their own everyday superpowers, such as kindness, compassion, listening and helping through hands-on activities. From Painting Kindness Rocks to Building a Better World Lego Station to Zooming around the Good Mood Movement Area, young families can explore values of being an everyday hero. The Everyday Heroes Activity Center will be open during regular Museum hours, June 4 through August 18.
“In each of us, there is a hero,” said David Schafer, managing director of the Maltz Museum. “Inside, we are strong enough, brave enough, and courageous enough to make choices that lift others up. Sometimes, we must even lift ourselves up first so that we can help someone else.”
In addition, guests can participate in an Everyday Hero Story Tour, which is a self-guided, hands-on tour using a new children’s book to explore the Museum’s core exhibition, An American Story. Discover heroic qualities of a family moving to a new country on this newly designed tour created to engage younger audiences.
