Prov Children’s Museum Announced Opening of “Voyage to Vietnam” Exhibit
Friday, June 16, 2017
“Research tells us that pretend play is one of the best ways for kids to learn to take other perspectives. In Voyage to Vietnam, kids get to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of a Vietnamese community celebrating an important holiday, Tet. It is our hope that the exhibit will indeed promote a better understanding of Vietnamese people and culture,” said Providence Children’s Museum Exhibit Director Jessica Neuwirth.
The exhibit is set to open on June 16 with a grand opening celebration from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The exhibit promotes understanding of Vietnamese culture and invites children and their caregivers to find the beauty, sights, and sounds of Vietnam.
It showcases traditions, customs and values displayed by the annual celebration of Tet.
Through interactive exhibits, families can immerse themselves in Vietnamese culture, gain an appreciation for traditions, values and daily experiences of people who live in Vietnam, and discover similarities and differences between their lives in the U.S. and the lives of families in Vietnam.
Guests can pose for interactive family photos, dress up in customary Ao Dai, try on a giant Lion Dance Mask, and create a fireworks display to signal the coming of the New Year.
