On Saturday, September 12, the Children’s Museum of St. Johns (CMSJ) debuted two components of its newest hands-on, interactive exhibit for children at the Florida Heritage Book Festival. CMSJ presented St. Augustine Sleuths, an interactive, educational exhibit based on what it was like to be a child during different periods in St. Augustine’s history. Researched and developed by a team of educators, designers, and artists, this exhibit allows children to step back in time and experience firsthand our Ancient City’s past!
The Children’s Museum of St. Johns (CMSJ) is an emerging museum and currently operating as a "Museum without Walls" as we search for a location to call home. At this time, we bring traveling exhibits and programs to various venues throughout the year. Once open to the public in our own museum space, CMSJ will be a fun, safe place to play, an exciting place to learn, and a comfortable gathering place for families to interact. Children will be able to touch, create, imagine, and learn through hands-on, interactive play. There will be no signs that say “DO NOT TOUCH!” Fun and entertaining exhibits will encourage play and, at the same time, stimulate the mind.
