"History museums are engines that can power a life time of learning for your child"

Museums are a showcase of greatest achievements and failures of humanity and several highlights between them. Visiting a museum is a great way for children to learn from them. Museums are also a hub for several art and education initiatives and communities, which give our children opportunities to get involved in educational and creative activities.
