Talking Back

There are lots of wonderful recent additions to the talk-back board in Play Power, which asks visitors, "What was a special place where you played?" I notice a trend – many shared memories of playing outdoors and in basements! Here's a sample:

And this isn't new information, but it's presented in a new way. On the first few days of January, Museum visitors added their wishes for the coming year to our New Year's tree. The result was funny, touching, utterly charming. Merideth, one of our Experience Coordinators, created a wish collage to hang in her office. It's beautiful – not only the wishes, but that they're preserved in such a wonderful way – and a reminder that our staff really notice and appreciate the amazing things that happen around us all the time.
