Children’s Museum Lesson Plan

Children’s museums feature interactive exhibits that are designed to be manipulated by children.

The first children’s museum in the world was the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, founded in 1899. Hundreds of children’s museums have opened in the United States since then. As of 2007, the Association of Children’s Museums estimated that there were approximately 80 children’s museums in development alone.
