Children's Museum: America to Zanzibar

- From architecture and art to food and music, the Children's Museum of Manhattan's new exhibit "America to Zanzibar: Muslim Cultures Near and Far" introduces children and their families to multifaceted Muslim communities around the globe and right here in New York.

Through hands-on activities selling spices, ceramics, and rugs, discovering new foods, and trying on colorful fashions, the exhibit takes children on a journey exploring cultures around the world by boat, truck, and camel.  And as they survey international architecture, the exhibit brings them back home with stories and valued belongings from the Muslim communities in our own city.

This exhibit will be open through January 2017. You can enjoy a variety of programs and performances every day, in addition to four more floors of fun at the museum.
