Main Street Children’s Museum featured in New York Times

Main Street Children’s Museum, which opened in December 2010 in Rock Hill, was included in a feature story about children’s museums in today’s New York Times.

The article “Classroom and Playground, All Rolled Into One” by reporter John Schwartz discusses the purpose of children’s museums.

“In Rock Hill, S.C., the new Main Street Children’s Museum opened in December as part of a broader downtown revitalization project,” Schwartz wrote. “Aimed at children 6 and younger, the museum gives visitors a chance to play on a ship, in a store and in other settings that, in the words of Owen Glendening, a museum official, allow them ‘to explore the world on their own terms, through creative play.’”

A photograph taken for the Culture & Heritage Museums by photographer Zan Maddox of socialdesignhouse.com was included with the article.

The story ran in a special “Museums” section on page F18.
