The Children's Museum of Manhattan

Overview

This exhibit was created for The Children’s Museum of Manhattan as part of Let’s Move, a health campaign launched by Michelle Obama. Children and their families explore how food, sleep and physical activity, work together to power the body and fuel the mind. This imaginative and immersive exhibit has 70 interactive activities that range from simple gross motor physical experiences, to high-tech, multi-media games. Together, they entertain and inform kids and their families about making the right choices, which leads to a healthier life. This exhibit combines the power of message with wonder, surprise, discovery and fun.

Goals

Our goal was to make children and their families more conscious about the choices we all make every day, because these choices have consequences to our health.

Process

We worked closely with the education staff to bring this show to life.
