Smithsonian Wegmans Wonderplace, Washington, DC

“Wonderplace,” a 1,700-square-foot children’s center, welcomes curious kids ages 0-6 (and their families) to explore a wide variety of hands-on exhibits at the National Museum of American History. Made possible by a $1.5 million gift and in-kind donations from Wegmans Food Markets, this gallery will allow curious kids to “cook” in a kitchen inspired by Julia Child’s; plant and harvest pretend vegetables and run the farm stand and more.
