Kids' Activities in the Museum

This week, we're coming up with activities for kids to do on a daily basis in our museum gallery. These need to be low-tech, cheap (but fun!) activities that can be available everyday, even if a staff member is not able to run them. For this task, we'd like to get our visitors' input. What do you want to see in our museum for your kids to do? Do you want a variety of activities, from coloring and games for younger kids to more intensive hands-on activities for older kids? Is there anything in particular that, when you've visited our museum--or any museum relating to naval history--your kids have said, "Wow, I really wish I could do [this]?" If so, please let us know! We want to incorporate your ideas into our new low-tech kids' activities so this is truly an area designed by you, our visitors. If you feel uncomfortable sharing your ideas here where everyone can see them, please send them to me at We look forward to hearing from you soon, and thanks so much for helping out!
