Long Island Children's Museum

Log Number: MA-10-19-0227-19

The Long Island children's Museum will plan, research, and develop the foundation for a permanent exhibition, “Saltwater Stories: Lured to the Sea.” The exhibit will explore local maritime traditions and their impact on the historical, cultural, and economic development of Long Island. Museum staff will work closely with evaluation and exhibition development consultants to research, develop, and test four possible themes for the exhibit. Key project activities will include content and thematic research, meetings with community advisors, site visits to other institutions, formative evaluation, and the creation of key documents to support the creation of the exhibition. Target audiences will review the museum's preliminary design, and focus group participants will discuss formats and techniques to promote lifelong learning for children and families.
