Previews of Westchester children's Museum
When: June 2 to September
The Westchester Children's Meseum (WCM) will be settling in the North Bathhouse on the broadwalk of Rye Playland and the opening is planned for 2015. As a preview, this summer from June 2 thru September 2014, there will be creative exhibits that allow for exploration in science, technology, engineering, art, and architecture. The first of two interactive exhibits, “KEVA Planks,” is an interactive experience comprised of thousands of small, uniform building planks yielding endless creation possibilities. The second exhibit, “Build a Rollercoaster,” is an interactive, hands-on experience that allows children to create their own roller coaster, from design phase to testing phase.
