National Children’s Museum

At the new location for the National Children’s Museum, visitors encounter a giant world map covering the lobby floor, and an oversized atlas with kid-sized pages describing the world’s ecosystems.

A themed marketplace propped with authentic Tanzanian goods creates an open-ended activity space for kids to play act as buyers and sellers, while intro panels show the cultures and landscape of Tanzania.

Circular flip panels introduce kids to cultures of the world through their foods, festivals, traditional clothing, and languages.
