Links to children's museums
"Children's museums are a pioneering and dynamic group of institutions that are challenging and redefining the boundaries of the traditional museum world and are still in the process of defining themselves. Children's museums have become the youngest and fastest growing segment in the museum field."
- Shanghai Discovery Children's Museum website

A children's museum is a colorful, exciting environment with hands-on activities designed to inspire active, educational play for children and their families. Together, for example, they can explore a child-sized town, try on the skis of an Olympic skier or wear clothes from another country. It is a fun environment where children develop their creative thinking, self-confidence and understanding of the world. It is an environment that helps build bridges between children with different backgrounds.
