Children's Exhibits
Creating engaging exhibits for curious children.

The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples wanted to refresh and replace some of its original exhibits in phases.  First up, convert a ’trolley’ car interior into a room for a trolley track table.  Second, change out some worn and not working elements in Mother Nature’s Playouse with more engaging an updated exhibits.

Location: Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples (CMON); Naples, FL

Train Room

The museum wanted to bring more activity to a train trolley area.  MAM Exhibit Design came up with a table shape that fit into the odd angled corner, maximizing play space on the top, and using the walls as a place to run train tracks down to the table.

Mother Nature’s Playhouse

This area is an area for the smallest visitors to explore the different seasons in the nation.  Museum staff wanted to freshen up the exhibits.  We designed and installed a dress the scarecrow activity, a hot cocoa stove with ‘logs’ to burn, a changeable snowman, a birdhouse shaped bookshelf – complete with a real birds nest!

The World Café

This area is a child-sized eatery where children prepare, serve and “eat” delicacies from the country being featured. Staff wanted to add a smell station to waft the aromas of world spices plus a set of discovery drawers.  We designed a unique puffer / turntable system to deliver authentic smells and a series of stacked drawers that can be filled with items from the featured country.
