The Power of Children: Making a Difference
A special traveling exhibit from the Indianapolis Children's Museum & NEH on the Road
Experience the extraordinary stories of three children whose lives teach us about overcoming obstacles to make a positive difference in the world: Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges and Ryan White. Through thought-provoking audiovisual presentations, original artifacts, and hands-on interactives, visitors will get to know each child's story. Immersive environments bring guests into the Secret Annex where Anne Frank and her family spent two years in hiding; the first grade classroom in which Ruby Bridges spent an entire school year alone with her teacher; and Ryan White's bedroom, filled with his treasured belongings. The Power of Children encourages children and their families to reflect on the significance of these three personal stories and inspires visitors to bring about positive change. Note: Exhibit material is serious in nature and recommended for children ages 8+ with their families and school groups.
