The Power of Children: Making a Difference
September 6-October 13, 2019
Experience the extraordinary stories of three children—Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges and Ryan White—who used the power of words and actions to make a positive difference in the world. Visitors will get to know each child's story through thought-provoking audiovisual presentations, original artifacts, and hands-on interactives. Immersive environments include the Secret Annex where Anne Frank and her family spent two years in hiding; the classroom in which Ruby Bridges spent an entire school year alone with her teacher; and Ryan White's bedroom, filled with his treasured belongings. Exhibit material is serious in nature and recommended for children ages 8+ with their families and school groups. This exhibit is made possible by NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. “The Power of Children: Making a Difference“ is based on the permanent exhibition organized by the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. Sponsored locally by Elmhurst Premier Childcare.
