Welcome to Spotlight, the official blog of the National Children’s Museum! Whether you’re a parent, caregiver or educator, we look forward to using this space to provide you with a variety of unique resources to better inspire the children in your lives to learn through play.

On this blog, you can expect to find behind-the-scenes looks at the Museum, fun tips and tidbits to make the most of your NCM visit, our thoughts on the relevant issues impacting children today and more! We’re also excited for the opportunity to learn more from and about you, and what you consider to be an ideal museum experience. Please feel free to start a dialogue with us through the comments sections on this blog, and connect with us via Twitter and Facebook.

If you’re one of the 75,000 visitors who spent time with us since we opened our doors in December 2012, thank you so much for welcoming us into your circle. If you’re considering a visit to NCM, we hope to see you here soon!
