Visitors will get to know each child's story through thought-provoking audiovisual presentations, original artifacts, and hands-on interactives. Immersive environments include the Secret Annex where Anne Frank and her family spent two years in hiding; the classroom in which Ruby Bridges spent an entire school year alone with her teacher; and Ryan White's bedroom, filled with his treasured belongings. Exhibit material is serious in nature and recommended for children ages 8 and older with their families and school groups.
