Year, The Magic House is celebrating the grand opening of the Museum’s
newest exhibit Children’s China: Celebrating Culture, Character and
for children 3 to 12 years, explores what life is like for children in
China today through six different immersive environments. In the school,
children will celebrate the annual holiday, National Teachers’ Day, while
learning to write “thank you teacher” in Chinese characters on a
touchscreen notepad. Visitors will take on the role of a researcher at the
panda reserve and discover how the people of China are caring for this
by using playful equipment that encourages fitness for all ages. As food
is an important cultural experience in China, children will shop in a
traditional neighborhood market filled with a variety of fish, fruits and
vegetables and then prepare a healthy meal while working in the
restaurant. In the home, visitors will learn how families celebrate the
Chinese New Year and then will participate in a daily dragon parade led by
a traditional dragon headdress at the Great Achievement Hall.
Children’s China: Celebrating Culture, Character and Confucius is part of
the Freeman Foundation Asian Culture Exhibit Series, funded by The Freeman
Foundation and administered by Association of Children’s Museums. Created
by The Magic House in partnership with the Confucius Institute at Webster
University and Character Plus, Children’s China is a nationally traveling
exhibit designed to increase understanding of the Chinese culture.
Children’s China is free with Museum admission.
