Summer vacation is here! Are you looking for a fun, entertaining, and educational activity for your children? Visit Kaleideum Downtown and Kaleideum North in Winston Salem. Kaleideum is an interactive museum of arts, sciences, and exploration formed by the merger of The Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem and SciWorks in July 2016. The two museums merged into a single organization to reimagine learning and better meet the needs of our diverse community by providing more access to informal science discovery and cultural experiences.
The museum’s mission is one of inclusivity and accessibility: inspiring wonder, curiosity, and lifelong learning in our children and community through interactive play and discovery. They achieve this through the overlapping lenses of literacy, the arts, and STEM — a true trifecta of opportunities for our children.
Kaleideum offers a variety of activities such as field trips, group visits and summer camps that focus on science, art, technology, design and music, ensuring that children have a well-rounded, engaging summer.
“We are thrilled to have both locations open and filled with children and families this summer, particularly as we celebrate the fifth anniversary of the creation of Kaleida,” said Elizabeth Dampier, Executive Director. “We love the sound of busy buildings where children can play, learn and grow.”
Kaleideum is commemorating the fifth anniversary milestone with 5 percent discounts in the Kaleideum North Gift Shop, $5 Friday admission throughout the month of July and a High Five Kaleideum! event (see sidebar) on the evening of July 23. Don’t miss out and High Five Kaleideum during July!
