TINKERTOY®: Build Your Imagination™
What better way to celebrate LICM’s 25th birthday than with an exhibit highlighting innovation, collaboration and play! (Do those attributes sound like a Children’s Museum you know?)
Step inside an enormous bubble and use giant wands to make a room full of bubbles, blurring the boundary between play and experimentation.
Tap, clap, bounce and dance into a world of percussion instruments and everyday objects that make sound.
Both safe and crazy, our accessible climbing sculpture encourages independence, freedom and exploration.
Perfect for crawlers, cruisers and toddlers, our little town celebrates the work people do in our communities. A lighthouse, farmer’s market, post office, train station and more spark the youngest imaginations.
The Community Gallery invites a dialogue with the work of the youngest of artists. The work displayed is often created by local schoolchildren.
Discover and test what makes an object a tool. Children learn safety measures and the creative process while using real tools to build their own sculptures.
Feasts for Beasts
Live animal habitats invite visitors to identify predators and prey, herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. The Animal Diner playfully tests what fits into an animal’s diet and hands-on games help examine other characteristics of eating.
Broken? Fix it!
Our award winning exhibit embraces the broken as you discover the joy and satisfaction in making things whole or usable again.
No glue, just gravity! More than 10,000 planks plus your imagination lead to limitless design possibilities. Geometry, balance and proportion help you create cities, imaginary creatures and more.
Interact with different historic and contemporary devices that humans use to communicate.
Create beauty, find order in the universe and follow your imagination. The more we look, the more we see.
From the north shore to the south shore, Montauk to Brooklyn, below every step you take is sand. Discover its unique properties, role play in an air conditioned beach, and “fish” for the catch of the day.
An outdoor sensory garden inviting exploration of natural elements, the weather and the water cycle, encouraging everyone to step outside the comfort of plugged-in lives to our messy, wondrous world.
