Children’s Museum World’s Fair
Open to girls, grades K – 9
A celebration of various cultures and a chance to embark on an exciting trek all in one day! This event is also an inter-generational celebration of cultural diversity in the contributions of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). While on your expedition, you will experience an international exhibition of crafts, hands-on projects, activities, music, literature, native attire, and food from many regions of the world. WHY: This year the Museum will celebrate the 21st year of the Children’s World’s Fair, having shared over 100 nations with the children of our community! Children’s World’s Fair provides children ages 2-12 with an appreciation of what is unique and universal to the customs of our global community in an interactive learning environment, making this big world seem a little smaller. We expect this event to engage over 1,000 explorers who will travel around the world with us! The proceeds from the Children's World's Fair provide critical support to the Louisiana Children's Museum’s hands-on exhibits, educational programs, and fun, safe, and meaningful learning opportunities for the children of this region.
