Boston Children’s Museum Ranked #4 By Parents Magazine

Boston, MA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 09, 2011 — Parents Magazine recently announced Boston Children’s Museum (BCM) the No. 4 children’s museum in the US. The magazine revealed the exclusive findings from its 10 Best Children’s Museums survey.
“We are honored Boston Children’s Museum has been recognized by Parents magazine as one of the top early museum experiences for children,” said Carole Charnow, BCM President & CEO. “Our environment is informal, but our purpose is serious. We encourage imaginative and creative exploration that leads to new insight and discovery and, of course, fun!” said Charnow.
Parents researched children’s museums across the U.S. to identify those with clever educational exhibits, mommy-and-me outings and festivals, healthy places for lunch, nursing areas, family restrooms and stroller parking. Parents then worked with the 300-plus members of the Association of Children’s Museums and eliminated those museums without a lot for kids under 3. Then, the magazine asked the remaining museums questions to help decide the leaders. After tallying the scores, Parents went to local moms to ask for insider tips.
According to the Parents survey, the ten Best Children’s Museums are:
1. The Children’s Museum of Houston
2. The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis
3. Please Touch Museum, Philadelphia
4. Boston Children’s Museum
5. Madison Children’s Museum
6. Kohl Children’s Museum
7. Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh
8. Children’s Museum of Phoenix
9. National Museum of Play, Rochester, NY
10. Minnesota Children’s Museum
Boston Children’s Museum pioneered the development of child-centered, interactive exhibitions, a model now used throughout the world to engage learners of all ages and all levels of knowledge and ability.
