DECEMBER NEWS

POP UP SHOP OPENS FOR HOLIDAY SHOPPING ON DECEMBER 1

The Museum is partnering with Melissa & Doug Toys and Scattered Books of Chappaqua, NY, to offer a colorful, engaging selection of toys and books for infants through middle school-aged children. The shop features books curated by Scattered Books, for our youngest visitors to middle school readers. Our toy selection, offered exclusively by Melissa & Doug, will feature the puzzles, toys, and imagination-building playsets that the company is known for. A portion of proceeds from shop sales will support the Museum's educational programs.
