Featured exhibit: Hundred Acre Wood
Hundred Acre Wood is an imaginary play installation where children can immerse themselves in the adventures of Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh and the rest of the beloved characters from A.A. Milne’s classic books. Beyond the enchanting aesthetics, our exhibit serves as a valuable tool for social-emotional learning in young children under 6. We’ve harnessed the beloved Winnie the Pooh characters, combined with exhibit design, books, and signage, to foster meaningful discussions about emotions and feelings. Our unwavering focus remains hands-on, imaginative play, which is not only fun but also instrumental in supporting young children’s cognitive and social development, fine and gross motor skills, and their understanding of the world around them.
Thanks to major support from Lahontan Community Foundation, and additional support from the Zappettini Family Foundation and an anonymous family foundation. In-kind support was provided by Easterbrook Painting, Ace Mountain Hardware & Sports and Truckee Paint Mart.
