With the emphasis on "curiosity," this inviting and playful space offers a dynamic, sensory environment. Visitors will throw themselves into new surroundings, exploring through sight, feel and imagination. This new interactive children's area features a tot section alongside four primary themed spaces for youth ages three to 14: The World of Radio, Town Building, The Dirty '30s and Kansas Weather.
The Curiosity Shop’s educational activities encourage cognitive, social and emotional development of children and students while serving as a safe, stimulating place of enrichment. Research shows that children who engage in meaningful play outside of the classroom perform better in school and have more success throughout life.
