Connect with the Museum virtually

Welcome to #thinkplaycreatefromhome – a way for us to socially connect with our creative community of families, members, donors and staff via virtual means. Although the Museum is temporarily closed, the ability to think, play and create goes beyond our Museum walls and can take place in everyone’s homes! Through #thinkplaycreatefromhome, we hope this is one way we can connect with families (and each other) to share ideas, activities, projects, advice, etc., during the many closures and time spent at home.

In launching #thinkplaycreatefromhome, first we were inspired to see how our staff was getting creative. Watch the following video to see what they came up with!
