What our families are sayingTestimonials
A number of years ago the Museum was fortunate to host a Hmong exhibit, created by the Madison, Wisconsin Children’s Museum. The Hmong exhibit featured examples of their life in Laos and other southeast asian countries. Many Hmong people visited this exhibit and one elderly gentleman explained its significance. The exhibit depicted village life, their agriculture and the story-cloths they would embroider. He appreciated the chance to show the history to his grandchildren, who otherwise would not understand his history at all. It was extremely rewarding for me to realize that the Museum could have this impact.
My daughter in law worked there for many years. All 4 of my grandchildren spent a lot of great times there. Both my daughters 2 boys and my sons daughter and son. Breakfast’s with Santa, birthday parties there and just spending an afternoon there, then having a picnic lunch. Plenty of fun had.
The children’s museum has been a big part of our family’s lives. My husband grew up in Whittier and remembers many visits to the museum as a child. When we move to the area in 2011, we became frequent visitors as well. My boys have enjoyed the rotating exhibits, sang many a song on stage in the dress up room, dug for a lot of dino bones, and ridden the carousel endlessly. The “Olympic games” donut eating contest is a highlight in my mind along with the visit from the knights of Medieval Times. The outdoor play passes during the shut down engages even my 12 year old. My 5 year old is looking forward to returning for the Halloween party this month and my 12 year old asked about Breakfast with Santa because that has always been a favorite of his. We are big fans of the museum and the amazing staff.
