The Children’s Section learned all about wellness and how to achieve balance, purpose and impact in our respective museums at our Networking Session at the NCMC Conference. It was great to hear how other museums are supporting the health and well-being of families across the state – and even battle it out with one of the most intense giant Jenga games we’ve ever seen! For more resources and guidance on how to support families during these times, we urge you to participate in the Association of Children’s Museums and US Department of Health and Human Services’ newest campaign, “We Can Do This” aimed at increasing broader vaccine confidence in communities. More information on the campaign can be found here.
