What is unique about a children’s museum?

Children’s museums provide exhibits, educational programs and special events to inspire informal learning through play. While traditional museums typically have a “look, but don’t touch” policy, Knock Knock features interactive learning zones (exhibits) that are designed to be manipulated by children.

What is a Learning Zone?

Knock Knock’s Learning Zones (exhibits) are informal interactive learning environments which provide “teachable moments” that connect children’s every day experiences with hands-on learning through play.

Who will Knock Knock serve?

Knock Knock Children’s Museum is designed for children, birth to age 8, and their families.

How can my classroom schedule a field trip?

Policies, plans and schedules are now being discussed. Announcements with additional details regarding group fieldtrips will be forthcoming spring 2017.
