Where Children Learn from the Past to Connect with Their Future
Children think of it as play; parents delight in it as an oasis for early learning. The Schoolhouse Children’s Museum brims with history and nurtures the joy of learning for thousands of young minds. This is not a place where children are told “Don’t Touch!” It is a place where they can engage in free play, touch, feel, listen and engage their minds, little fingers and bodies in activities that help them to grow and learn.
Nothing is more important to the city’s future than its children. Boynton Beach city leaders have gone to great lengths to plan the Town Square development around the historic Schoolhouse Children’s Museum – a choice that celebrates the institution’s significant role in the city’s past, present and future. The leaders chose to dedicate an entire section of Town Square to the youngest members of the community by locating a new playground for 2 to 5-year-olds adjacent to the museum. This is thoughtful city planning at its best.
The Museum, constructed in 1913, is the oldest-standing schoolhouse in Boynton Beach. The innovative new playground will be the focus of joy and learning for even more young children as it takes its place in the heart of the Town Square. All activities are meant to inspire and engage children to explore, play, learn and discover through creative, interactive learning opportunities that integrate the arts, humanities and sciences in cultural and historical settings.
