The World Awareness Children’s Museum helps kids discover the world!
The World Awareness Children’s Museum brings our diverse world to children through our play space, educational programs, and international children’s art exchange. Art and artifacts are featured in the Museum’s hands-on learning space, go!. These items are also used in educational programs and loaned to other museums, businesses, and institutions for display.
Go! is a unique, hands-on children’s museum featuring art, artifacts, and activities from around the world. Children create culturally-inspired experiences to help them form positive ideas about people with whom they share the world. The peaceful connections experienced during your visit promote positive images of diverse cultures by planting seeds of understanding that will prepare children to be better citizens of our multicultural world.
The dedicated staff introduces children to topics related to geography, foods, daily activities and traditions in other countries. These educational modules provide an opportunity to bring our diverse world to children, the mission of the World Awareness Children’s Museum. The permanent collection includes over 6,000 cultural objects and 8,000 pieces of international youth art from 140 countries.
We participate during the months of July and August only in the Lake George Area Military Discount program. At this time we offer free admission for Active Service Members and their Families through the Blue Star Museum program.
