Unlike the Home and the School, where children learn Socially and Intellectually, this Children’s Museum is a third, missing typology of learning space: experiential and kinesthetic, exhibiting jungle gyms and other full scale children’s playsets as a pavilion garden. 
Each of these play structures, whether part of the museum’s permanent collection or either brought in or made on-site by the artists themselves, is intended as a teaching tool for growing minds and bodies to engage equally. The work, like the guests of the Museum, learns from its surroundings and references both site features, like the creek and arboretum, and the city at large, and the local neighbourhood  in its tectonics.
