DuPage Children’s Museum is expected to present an exhibition featuring science, technology, engineering, art and mathematical principles of architecture. Children will experience innovative building styles, construction techniques, common decorative elements, and the cultural attributes of Greek and Mayan monuments. They will be using interactive methods and specially designed public programs, while becoming familiar with fundamental principles that helped shape modern day architecture.
The exhibit will present two historic cultures through the architecture and engineering of their monumental spaces. In collaboration with the National Hellenic Museum and the National Museum of Mexican Art, DCM museum has prepared a great exhibition, which will focus on the Parthenon and other buildings on the Acropolis in Athens, along with the Mayan structures at Chichen Itza in the jungles of southeastern Mexico.
DuPage Children’s Museum’s mission is to stimulate curiosity, creativity, thinking and problem solving in young children through self-directed, open-minded experiences, integration of the arts, science and math, and the child-adult learning partnership.
DuPage Children’s Museum has three floors which hold interactive exhibits, events, meetings, party or program rooms and Learning Laboratories.
