A new exhibit aimed at children is opening at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
“XOXO: An Exhibit About Love and Forgiveness” is a play-based exhibit using hands-on activities and interactive technology to help children understand, appreciate and express their emotions.
“When human rights concepts like fairness and respect are introduced at a young age, they can have a lasting impact,” said CMHR president and CEO John Young. “This wonderful exhibition will ignite sparks that generate discussion and learning through active play while sharing thoughts with families and caregivers.”
Visitors can sit on a teeter totter to balance a ball using teamwork, hold hands while touching sensors, creative five-second videos of their facial expressions and other activities.
The exhibit was created by the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh with support from the Fetzer Institute, and will run in the CMHR’s new Level 1 Gallery until January 3, 2016.
The public can get its first look beginning Sunday, October 4. Admission is $8 for everyone aged three and up, and free for museum members.
