Later this fall, the Kids Discovery Museum (KiDiMu) will be installing a new exhibition titled, Home, a modular exhibit from the Freeman Foundation Asian Culture Exhibit Series. The exhibit is designed to bring children and families together to examine the insides and outsides of Chinese, Japanese, and Hmong homes. With a focus on cooking and food, gardening, and/or play in each culture, children can pretend to water and grow plants on a Beijing balcony garden, cross over a koi pond, create origami, design a story cloth, or BBQ for a Hmong festival in this immersive display of three unique Asian homes.
Over the past twenty years, the Freeman Foundation has majorly invested in developing a greater appreciation of Asian cultures and histories in the United States in partnership with the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM). As a hands-on, modular exhibit, Home will help visitors to engage with the content deeply. In addition, by remaining at KiDiMu and in the community, Home will become a part of a child’s long-term memory, creating a more in-depth experience, openness, and comprehension of Asian cultures.
More information about the exhibit will be posted on KiDiMu’s website later this fall: kidimu.org.
