Why do they call it a museum? It's an awesome place with green hippos, Dora the Explora and TVs that sing. I was at an adult museum, where they had bones of old animals and stuffed beasts and giants minerals and dusty coffins. A children's museum should have really old children's shoes, prehistoric cribs, the first McClaren ever made. We could see the first mommy giving birth, the first stork. Museum curators, board of directors, let's name museums for what they are and the Children's Museum on 83rd Street is simply the Chill/Bug-out Museum.
It's true. Emma has a fair point.
Maybe the word Museum is a word whose time has past.
Maybe next time we'll see what's happening at MOMA.
