Science at Play
Opens July 22
Chemistry sets and science toys have fascinated children for decades. They reassured parents that their children would be more prepared for prestigious careers, and convinced kids that experiments were daring and exciting. Science at Play, the first major museum exhibition to explore the many facets of these miniature laboratories for children, draws from the Chemical Heritage Foundation’s collection of more than 250 science kits and toys.
This exhibition is part of the Year of Science, presented by Lilly.
