Finishing Touches – Day 56

Monday brought a flurry of activity and attention to remaining details. As Molly created new ramps and tracks for the build a-maze activity, Carole Ann reinstalled the case beneath the admissions desk and Water Ways got a good scrubbing. The final pieces of colorful plexiglass were added to the play dome, the musical pipes were tuned, new lights were added to the kaleidoscope, and graphic designer Valerie Haggerty-Silva and her helpers installed the rest of the Play Power graphics.

And before the doors opened this morning, staff tested everything in Play Power to make sure it's working smoothly – and tons of fun! Here are some photos of Museum staff at play as they prepared for the first visitors to arrive.

As Janice climbed into the play dome, Chris checked the sounds of the musical pipes.

Admissions desk clerk Nick investigated the air tubes before his shift while Carly got the activity tables ready for visitors

and Arielle and several AmeriCorps members tested their maze-building skills.
Believe me, we CAN'T WAIT to see the kids again!
