This museum makes African-American history interesting and accessible. Using a unique guided tour format emphasizing the educational message each exhibit is designed to achieve highlights their philosophy of building children's minds through fun, hands-on exhibits. Our latest exhibit is titled "STEM Rocks" It takes the children on a short journey to learn about the importance of STEM - science, technology, engineering, and math - in our lives.Children design a make-n-take paper robot, see a short film on STEM, and have interactive play  time centered around STEM activities such as a green screen rocket ride. We also expose them to African- Americans in the STEM field. Little ones will love the Binga Bank teller windows and ATM, and the Hospital exhibit stethoscopes and heart model "puzzle." Learn about African-American inventors in the Bronzeville Gallery. In the "Selecting Foods for Healthy Living" exhibit, load grocery carts from the pretend grocery store, and learn about healthy eating and working out while having fun in the "You Are What You Eat" exhibit.
