Have you taken your kids to the May We All Grow Up to Be Children Exhibit at The Westchester Children’s Museum in Rye? It’s running until November 26, and features illustrations by renowned artist George H. Lewis that will appear in the book Arthur and Bun-Bun: Adventures with Tut. The exhibit brings the story of Arthur and his beloved, time-traveling stuffed bunny, to life. We spoke with Alex Tagami, Committee Chair of the Westchester Children’s Museum Lavan Family Gallery, about the exhibit—and the importance of imaginary friends.
What ages is this exhibit best suited to?
One of the special things about this exhibition is that it is suited not only for children, but also for their parents and caretakers!
What are you most excited about with this exhibit?
The mission of the Museum to nurture curiosity and ignite imagination perfectly aligns with the spirit of Arthur’s journey and we hope that the exhibit will remind children and adults alike to never lose their sense of childlike wonder and curiosity.
Anything else parents should know before bringing their kids?
With parental permission, we would love for children to bring their own special “lovey” or stuffed animal with them to the exhibition. This exhibition is free with general admission and the museum has many other exciting activities for children and families during their visit, such as the Toddler Beach, Build Your Own Rollercoaster, Makerspace, Book Nook, and others. We are particularly excited to have special advance copies of the book Arthur and Bun-Bun: Adventures with Tut that families can read and enjoy together.
