The Zula Patrol landed their spaceship at CMOR Central on Tuesday, September 13. Their mission: WEATHER.
“The Zula Patrol” is an animated children's show on PBS and in each episode the characters gather in their spaceship and set off to make discoveries about science and astronomy. The characters on the show demonstrate critical thinking skills while also modeling inquisitiveness, observation, collaboration and an excitement for scientific exploration and problem solving.
CMOR’s Cleaning Practices in prep for Cold&Flu Season!
It’s that wonderful time of year again! Pumpkins, presents and all the Yule tide joy you can get. It’s also that time of year in which sniffles and coughing can be heard echoing throughout the city, otherwise known as Cold and Flu Season! People of all ages are at risk for catching the naughty little cold viruses. Here at the Children’s Museum of Richmond we have taken a strong approach toward fighting off these germs with our cleaning and sanitation practices.
EEEK!! There are MICE in the TREE HOUSE!!
That’s right, and tree frogs and turtles, too! In fact, the Children’s Museum of Richmond’s Living Tree House now gives kids the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of nature’s cutest critters.
Outside the temperature may be getting cooler, but inside the Children’s Museum, things are heating up! Excitement is rising as we wait for the opening of our newest exhibit – Sun Tubes.
Sun Tubes, provided by Dominion, is a solar energy exhibit that’s designed to show kids through play how the suns energy can be used for power. Insert colored scarves and watch as they soar through a clear-tube maze that’s powered by solar panels on the museum roof. While you’re there make sure to check out the video to learn more about solar energy.
If you are the mother of a young child, chances are you know all the old standard baby and kid hang outs in Richmond. We spend the better part of our lives at these places, especially during the hot summer months and dark winter days.
When a new place pops up, we are there like white on rice. We can’t resist. RVANews sent my kids and I to check out the latest addition at the Children’s Museum of Richmond. The Little Farm is the new play exhibit for children ages 0-3.
