Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action

Video games and cartoons take up a lot of children’s time, and the Family Museum’s summer exhibit, Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action is out to combat childhood inertia. The exhibit, opening June 8 and running through September 8, 2019, invites children and adults to explore activities such as kung fu, surfing, snowboarding, yoga, and horizontal climbing. The primary goal of the exhibit is to get kids into action by playing and doing things they like to do.
