Exhibit Expansion

We have exciting plans to add a check-out station and new deli counter to our popular Market exhibit. However, these exhibit improvements are only possible through the generous donations from our community.

With your help, WE can make it happen.

See what you can buy in our Museum’s Market! From replica fresh fruits to imitation goodies, our market has plenty of goods to offer. Learn how crops are transported from farm to market and have fun buying and selling groceries with your friends. A new Cheese Counter, and Deli are coming soon to the Market!

Our market is sponsored by Museum Board Members Treesha Baird, and Michelle Flannery. The Market allows children to learn the math and social skills involved with buying and selling goods. Children also learn how healthy lifestyle choices begin with healthy grocery shopping habits. Literacy skills are also inspired by new menus in the Bistro and labeled shelves for grocery items.
