Exhibits offer educational and entertaining experiences that engage all the senses. There are three family-friendly exhibits in the Triad we thought you might want to know about before they end. 

Childhood: Exploring Youth Culture around the World, Through December 11, Museum of Anthropology at WFU

What do children play with in Mexico? How do kids in Somalia learn to read? Explore these and other questions about children’s lives around the world in this new student-curated exhibit.

From Here to There, Through January 3, Sciworks

How do we move things on land, sea and air? Discover the laws of gravity and motion as you float on a Hovercraft chair, move your boat through an authentic canal lock system, send colored balls zooming through air tubes, lift weights with pulleys, levers, pneumatics and hydraulics and more.

Life After Death: The Day of the Dead in Mexico, Through December 11, Museum of Anthropology at WFU

The Museum of Anthropology’s annual exhibit celebrates the unique Mexican observance of the Day of the Dead. Its centerpiece is a traditional ofrenda, an altar with food and beverage offerings, flowers, sugar skulls and photos of deceased family members. The exhibit presents text in English and Spanish.

We can't mention exhibits without alerting you to a special deal.

Half-Price Sundays at GCM, Every Sunday, Greensboro Children’s Museum

Enjoy all the fun for only $4, half the cost of regular admission. Great for all ages.
