Stories Teach About Life
Discover Stories from Our Community, a new project dedicated to the tradition of story-telling and oral history sharing at The Children’s Museum.
Storytelling helps communities share their history, traditions, and ideas. Stories can be funny or serious. They can be true or made-up. But all stories help us share meaningful and interesting things with our friends and families.
The interactive display at the museum features stories provided to the museum by members of various communities, which provide museum visitors with learning opportunities from different cultures and perspectives.
Children and families are invited to view the new project in the museum and provide a story of their own on the museum's blog.
