Mississippi Children's Museum

About the Project

THE GALLERIES

Working from current educational and child development research, children’s museums combine specific learning objectives with play in informal learning environments.  For the Mississippi Children’s Museum-Meridian, we envision a space that will reflect Meridian and East Mississippi and will incorporate all five of MCM’s educational initiatives.

The museum’s exhibits will focus most directly on health and nutrition; literacy; and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).  Aspects of the cultural arts and East Mississippi heritage will be incorporated throughout.
