Children's museums have gravitated towards Imagination Playground™, often building full exhibits around the equipment. They report that it is a wonderful way to promote inter-age play, as well as provide programming that increases active play. Many museums also use Imagination Playground™ as an outreach tool, featuring it at the center of their public, family-facing events. While the National Children's Museum's permanent site was under construction, the staff was able to use Imagination Playground™ as the centerpiece to its Launch Zone and Museum Without Walls program. In both settings, Imagination Playground™ was used to create a block-building and construction zone providing children with the opportunity to engage in free play.
When we have arts and crafts activities, the kids usually leave after they're done with their project, but with Imagination Playground™, they stay for hours!
