Sesame Street will be spending some time in Washington D.C.
The National Children’s Museum (NCM) today announced it will work in partnership with Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit organization behind Sesame Street. The National Children’s Museum will provide Sesame Workshop a permanent museum home in the nation’s capital, extending the Workshop’s educational mission. As part of the partnership, Sesame Street, and its characters, through interactive exhibits, educational video segments and books, will be integrated into elements of the Museum’s Early Learners gallery and incorporated in select Museum events and programming. Additionally, Sesame Workshop will collaborate with NCM on content development, exhibits, and program creation for the Museum’s Our World gallery, which will focus on diverse cultures and places around the globe.
Sesame Street has been a part of our culture for over 40 years. Its impact and has been felt by almost every adult either directly, through their child or grandchild. Children and parents will have an opportunity to have hands on fun with Sesame Street exhibits while learning. The National Children’s museum will open in 2013.
