Centennial Family Fest – April 6, 2013

Boston Children’s Museum turns 100 this year and kicks off an action-packed season of centennial celebrations with a Family Fest event on Saturday, April 6th. This unique event is a first for the Museum and will not only provide unforgettable family fun, but also showcase family learning.

Family Fest Co-sponsor, WGBH, will bring their popular characters Curious George, Arthur, Peep, and Buster; award winning celebrity chefs Ming Tsai and Joanne Chang will demonstrate their culinary expertise – and everyone will get to taste; moms and dads can explore parenting concepts with Rick Weissbourd, acclaimed author of The Parents We Mean To Be: How Well-Intentioned Adults Undermine Children's Moral and Emotional Development; and technology and learning with WGBH Digital Producer, Jillian Orr, while their little ones play next door watched by certified care specialists.


In addition to all-day special programming such as world music, drum circles, youth orchestras, and KidStage productions, each and every exhibit in the Museum will offer special programming focused on learning together as a family, and having fun doing it. Many of the researchers who conduct projects at the Museum throughout the year will also be on hand to talk about their research with parents. The popular Art Studio will be transformed into a magical Paper World. Don’t miss this day long event!

All activities are covered by general Museum admission. Check the calendar for event times.
