Portland Children's Museum
Log Number: MA-10-19-0488-19
The Portland children's Museum will open a new exhibition, “Drip City,” which focuses on water as a precious natural resource that has shaped the region's geography, weather, and culture. Following an IMLS-funded evaluation and design process, the museum will engage a local fabrication company to construct and install exhibit components that explore concepts in science, engineering, and art. The museum will also engage community members in the design and testing of associated programs that target families and children ages 0 to 7. Museum staff will evaluate all exhibit elements to ensure they are working properly, accessible as intended, and making children's learning visible to adult audiences.
