The Power of Children: Making a Difference

The Power of Children: Making a Difference

Presented by Elmhurst History Museum at Elmhurst History Museum

Experience the extraordinary stories of three children—Anne FrankRuby Bridges and Ryan White—who used the power of words and actions to make a positive difference in the world.  Visitors will get to know each child’s story through thought-provoking audiovisual presentations, original artifacts, and hands-on interactives. Immersive environments include the Secret Annex where Anne Frank and her family spent two years in hiding; the classroom in which Ruby Bridges spent an entire school year alone with her teacher; and Ryan White’s bedroom, filled with his treasured belongings.  Exhibit material is serious in nature and recommended for children ages 8+ with their families and school groups. This exhibit is made possible by NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. “The Power of Children: Making a Difference“ is based on the permanent exhibition organized by the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. Sponsored locally by Elmhurst Premier Childcare.
