Cobblestone Children’s Museum changed its name to Explore it! Children’s Museum. This name change was made to more accurately convey the museum mission. Explore it! Children's Museum will promote interactive learning and inspire creativity where children and adults can explore through moments of shared discovery. The group remains the same and is still dedicated to making a children’s museum a reality in the Fredericksburg area.

Explore it! Children's Museum also received financial assistance from the Duff McDuff Green, Jr. Fund of the Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region. This grant will allow two members of the Board of Directors to attend the 2012 Association of Children's Museum (ACM) InterActivity Conference. This three day conference, held in Portland,
Oregon, has one day designed specifically for emerging children’s museums. The conference will address the basics of establishing a strong children’s museum infrastructure, as well as the struggles and concerns associated with theses institutions, including developing civil partnerships, spearheading a capital campaign and planning exhibits. The resources gained from this conference will be extremely beneficial to the Board of Directors of Explore it! Children's Museum.

Pouches Visits the Past

HistoryCamp

If Pouches' experience at History Camp is any indication, your son or daughter will enjoy joining Washington Heritage Museums and the George Washington Foundation for History Camp in Fredericksburg. The week-long day camp will be held June 25-29, from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day.

Young historians discover American history with hands-on experiences as they walk in the footsteps where the history of Fredericksburg, and a budding America, was created. The camp complements the history taught in classrooms with activities such as soap making, code breaking, colonial crafts, penmanship and much more.
