Shopping at the  International Marketplace

Shopping, following a list, and paying a cashier are all important life skills that children learn in the Marketplace and Kitchen.  A variety of food, shopping carts and play money allow the children to play shopper and shopkeeper alike.

Children love this exhibit and taking the shopping carts to all parts of the museum.  Little cooks especially enjoy preparing a special meal for a parent or caregiver. The kitchen includes a sink, refrigerator, stove top and grill, along with pots, pans, and plates. Varied food choices teach children about preparing a balanced meal and provide parents a chance to do sorting games with preschoolers.
