Nestled in a series of colorful rooms at the very top of the museum, children discover a fascinating collection of dollhouses, including a replica of CMC’s home – the historic Stager Beckwith mansion. As they explore this exhibit, children can search for a hidden logo, and, through hands-on play, create their very own miniature world.
What Kids Play
What Kids Learn
Dollhouses are a great platform to engage young children in conversation to promote the development of verbal skills. Houses are a recognizable space for children, and caregivers can point to different objects within the familiar setting to host a conversation with their child.
The collection includes homes and dolls from different time periods and cultures. These are a great way to give children exposure to different traditions and cultures.
Our BrickWorks & BrickWorks Jr. exhibits promote the development of spatial skills through building play. This development is the foundation of design, architecture, and engineering!
