The World Awareness Children’s Museum is an educational institution which fosters knowledge and appreciation of world cultures through exhibitions, interactive programming, the International Youth Art Exchange and educator-led tours.

On-site: World Awareness Children's Museum exhibitions consist of changing interactive installations inspired by children's art from around the world, acquired through the Museum's International Youth Art Exchange (ARTex) program. Uniquely structured to be educational and fun, children explore and touch hands-on exhibits and artifacts. Activities are designed for children as well as adults for a shared cultural experience. .

History

In 1995 the World Awareness Children's Museum was created with a mission to foster awareness, understanding, and appreciation of worldwide cultural diversity for children and adults.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
