POUGHKEEPSIE, NY – Count like the Aztecs, double your allowance and race against time at Fun 2, 3, 4!, the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum‘s new exhibition.
Opening weekend for Fun 2, 3, 4! is Saturday, February 2 and Sunday, February 3. A special exhibition preview for Mid-Hudson Children’s
Museum members will be held on Friday, February 1 from 6- 8:30 pm.
Fun 2, 3, 4! invites families to explore the fun side of math through hands-on exhibits that introduce measuring, estimating, counting and
calculation in sometimes zany ways. “How Many is a Million?” challenges visitors to be the first to topple a glass by spinning gears one million
times. “Super Bowl” is the exhibition’s own skee ball game that introduces basic graphing. Children can even “Measure the Dino” with their own feet.
“This exhibition gets kids moving and families exploring together while introducing the foundations of math in a playful, hands-on way,” states
Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum executive director, Lara Litchfield-Kimber. Fun 2, 3, 4! strongly supports the museum’s new school readiness initiative by introducing young children to core mathematical concepts and providing opportunities for them to develop early problem-solving and communication skills.
During opening weekend on Saturday and Sunday, special hands-on activities will be offered from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm. The exhibition and all activities are included with museum admission.
Fun 2, 3, 4! was developed by the Sciencenter in Ithaca, NY, with funding from the National Science Foundation. The purchase of the exhibition by the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum was made possible with generous support from IBM.
Located on the historic Hudson River waterfront in Poughkeepsie, NY, the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum enlightens minds in a fun and creative learning environment where hands-on experiences spark curiosity, discovery and the joy of exploration. The Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30am to 5:00pm and Sundays from 11:00am to 5:00pm. Admission is $7.50 per person. Children under 1 year are free.
