design matters

This space was designed to offer widely varying items and experiences, with different colors, levels, patterns and textures. Alcoves and nooks allow for visitors to experience quieter moments. We showcase the Children’s Museum’s puppet collection, courtesy of Margo Lovelace, through an animated interactive that allows you to interact with this unique collection.
