Children’s Museum of Sonoma County has compiled a list of resources for families coping with trauma and disasters
All children’s museums function across four key dimensions: local destinations, community resources, educational laboratories, and advocates for children.
Many children’s museums around the world have mascots that represent their museum’s mission, history, and sense of fun.
In the first 25 years of the 20th century, four museums for children opened in the United States: Brooklyn Children’s Museum (1899), Boston Children’s Museum (1913), the Detroit Children’s Museum (1917), and The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis (1925).
Many ACM members around the country are offering discounted and free admission to families who have been affected by the shutdown.
