This article discusses the uniqueness of children’s museums and exhibits.

Children museums or exhibits tend to be hands-on, immersive, and engaging.

The authors describe three steps to creating or redesigning an exhibit specifically geared towards children:

  1. Know the audience: understand a child’s attention needs and wants as well as their learning strengths
  2. Revisit the way we present history
  3. Use familiar tools in an unfamiliar way (develop the resources you already have for children)
