Children's Gallery - The Skin You're In

The Skin You're In
Children's Gallery Exhibition

Your skin covers you from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. The Skin You're In is all about that very important organ called skin. Visit the Museum of Health Care's Children's Gallery to try some hands-on activities, flip through a book, make a piece of art to take home... and much, much more! Learn, laugh, and discover the mysteries and wonders of your skin.

The Children’s Gallery is a safe gathering place for families to learn about their bodies, health, and health care in a fun and interactive environment.

The Skin You're In Exhibition Opening

On May 13, 2012, over 160 children and adults visited the Museum of Health Care for an afternoon of activities and family fun in celebration of the grand opening of our first Children's Gallery exhibition The Skin You're In. The event featured hands-on activities, snacks, a book corner, handprint art for Mother’s Day, and face painting. It was an opportunity for both children and adults to learn all about skin - the talented organ that covers you from the top of your head to the tips of your toes! Entry and activities were offered free of charge as part of United Way’s Success By 6 Week.
