If exploring a museum full of some of the most extraordinary, handcrafted antiques and expertly designed modern kaleidoscopes is a dream of yours, then dreams really do come true! Now through December, you can experience such an exhibit at the World Awareness Children’s Museum in Glens Falls, New York.
The exhibit, “Kaleidoscopes: Mirrored Views of the World” opened in mid-September and runs through December 30th, features exquisite and visually-stunning pieces on loan from the private collection of Dr. Judith Mysliborski, who has been collecting kaleidoscopes for more than 15 years.
This exhibit isn’t only for grown-ups, either. The museum also features a child-sized, custom-built, walk-through kaleidoscope, made possible through the Glen Falls foundation and private contributions. Kaleidoscopes are incorporated into the exhibits and programs of each section of the museum and are sure to enamor both children and adults alike.
Take a sneak-peak of the World Awareness Children’s Museum’s Kaleidoscopes exhibit before you attend with this special video clip. The museum, located at 89 Warren St. in Glens Falls is open 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
