Wow ! What a cool day !!!!
I spent the coolest time at the Discovery Museum in Cherry Hill NJ today with my new associates of The Jersey Shore Children's Museum....Mari and Vivian.....
Myself and My Mom ( Rest in Peace MOM.....)
Recently, I was invited to the board of directors of our own Jersey Shore Children's Museum .
Today, we spent some relaxing and quality time being toured around the Garden State Discovery Museum, taking notes, sharing ideas and even talking about affiliate relations between the Museums. How awesome is that? With today's ever changing technology, it is so important for these places to thrive and survive. Not that there is anything wrong with technology...... we reach over 3500 people just on this blog ....from all over the world..... and I thank you for that. What I'm saying is, it's not the ONLY thing we need to make our children well rounded. These museums are working on integrating the technological world somewhat with the more hands on, "play stations" for children. As you will see in the pictures below....the Discovery Museum has done that very well. With a few big screens and a few push button features they have integrated the most important part of the Museum..... PLAY. There is even an area for the real little ones ..... Older siblings have a duck scavenger hunt where they locate ducks strategically placed around the museum for a prize. If you want to browse through the pictures.... you can get an idea of the imagination behind all this. You can also visit the sites by the links above or by clicking VISIT at the museum logos at the bottom.
The Jersey Shore Children's Museum has spent some great years at the Shore Mall, which is now being mostly closed and knocked down. There is a new location that is in the works behind the Hamilton Mall, so the campaign right now is to get the new Museum up and running. Much work is needed as you will see if you visit the site and see the pics. of the new intended space.
The Discovery Museum has graciously allowed us to take photos and share them with you. We look forward to a long relationship with the Discovery Museum as we get the Jersey Shore Museum into a new location and beyond..... Thank you Kelly and your staff for making this time so special for us !
