Mississippi Children’s Museum

The Mississippi Children’s Museum provides unparalleled experiences that ignites a thirst for discovery, knowledge, and learning in all children.

The Stories

Monique Ealy is the MS Children's Museum Outreach Coordinator, and she dare to differ. This summer, she has traveled from Bolton to Brandon, Pearl to Prentiss and more to engage children in a pilot program Fit for Fun! This program is sponsored by Subway and incorporates an interactive reading of a food-themed story, a hands-on, science-based experience using MCM's healthy plate, active movement, and fun fitness activities for children of all ages and abilities. Thanks to corporate and community support, Monique and other members of MCM are able to travel to children who have limited access to other educational resources and bring unparalleled experiences outside of the museum. MCM takes fun seriously, and we're proud to have Monique on our team!

Wesley's very practical artwork was a part of the Children's Museum's latest exhibit, which opened this weekend. "How People Make Things" offers hands-on activities using real factory tools and machines to create objects with four manufacturing processes: molding, cutting, deforming and assembly...
