We are happy to announce the opening of our latest exhibit, the exciting new Interactive Floor at KidsPlay!
Interactive floors transform ordinary floors into fun play spaces. The games allow visitors to interact with projected images that react to movement, offering the children the opportunity to learn through physical play.
Our new interactive floor at KidsPlay encourages children to be active and social, while enabling caregivers to play and engage with their children in a healthy, educational environment.
Our floor is ready...come on in and give it a try!
*Funds to acquire and install the floor were raised by a crowdfunding campaign launched at the Museum’s annual fundraiser, the Summer Fete, in August 2019. Thank-you to our 23 donors who made this exhibit possible!
