Harry Truman Presidential Library & Museum

Harry Truman Presidential Library & Museum

Independence, MO

One of the great challenges for historical museums is meeting the needs of family groups. Within the exhibit, EAI found ways to keep active minds and fidgety bodies happy and engaged by working with the museum’s education department to develop interactives. “Write to the President” encourages children to write and mail a letter to Truman. Other “Discovery Areas” for children are embedded throughout the exhibit, and dedicated activities such as with “Unlock the Secret to Harry’s Jobs” and “Dress Like Bess” are visitor favorites.
