Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum (Aired On March 7 & 8, 2015)
The Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum, near the edge of the Hudson in Poughkeepsie, is one of the great destinations for parents and children in the Hudson Valley. Lara Litchfield-Kimber, Executive Director of the museum, and Sara Capozzoli, Director of Public, Media and Corporate Relations, visit RadioRotary to tell about the many hands-on exhibits and programs designed for children from age 0 to 6. Since 1989 the museum has provided a first-class learning-through-play experience. Although there are fees most days, every third Saturday is a free day, so all can enjoy it. Now, as an added attraction, the elevator to the Walkway over the Hudson is just steps away. A new exhibit, “Early Learning Junction,” with a railroad theme, joins the ”WonderDome,” “Imagination Playground,” RiverTown, and other delights.
