Mid-Hudson Children's Museum New "Tell Me A Story" Exhibition Opening Weekend

Opening Weekend with special hands-on activities:

Friday, December 1 to Sunday, December 3 during regular museum hours

The new "Tell Me a Story" exhibition features immersive environments that invite climbing, crawling, exploring and storytelling.  Children can venture under the Hyde Park Mastodon skeleton for a closer look, put on their own puppet show or bravely read a book in a giant cargo net hammock suspended high above the main stairwell.  Kids can experiment with mysterious treasures and liquids under the planks of a pirate ship or don a costume to put on a live show.  There are numerous activities throughout for parents and children to do together, all focused on helping children develop important literacy, language, and social skills.  There's even an interactive bookmaking exhibit that invites parents to take pictures with their phones to create and share their own picture books. This exhibit was built in-house at the Mid-Hudson Children's Museum and can only be seen here in Poughkeepsie. Don't miss it!
