The Museum Corner, an interactive exhibit space located in the Children’s Department at the Centereach building, is a specially designed area that features changing hands-on exhibits and programs for children and their families. To enhance the museum experience, vast opportunities for creative expression and intellectual exploration are provided – props for dress-up, science experiments, historical artifacts and art activities. The Museum Corner invites visits by families, schools & community groups to explore, experience, share and create in a safe, fun environment.
The Let’s Eat: Farm to Table exhibit opened in February 2019 and will run through September 2019. The exhibit provide hands-on opportunities for children and families to role-play “harvesting” food at the farm, “shopping” at the local farmer’s market and “cooking” meals in our country kitchen while learning where food comes from and how it gets to our tables. The exhibit also promotes local and healthy food options, and provides recipes families can make at home to enjoy at their own tables.
