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.
This summer, the Museum Corner invites Middle Country and ERC families with children entering K-5th grade (older and younger siblings welcome) to immerse themselves in three interactive rotating exhibits:
