|Facility:||Cobb County Youth Museum|
|Description:||Unique among participatory museums, the Cobb County Youth Museum uses role-playing to involve children in the learning experience.
Two guided tours of the museum are conducted each school day for elementary, middle school, and junior high classes. During the two guided tours, docents dressed in period costumes lead the tours, involving the children in self-expression through role-playing and lively discussion. Children move through numerous settings and exhibit areas in the museum, participating in an unfolding narrative of selected historic and cultural interest. Several children are chosen to dress in authentic costumes and act out a brief skit at each setting along the tour, bringing history alive in story fashion, much to the delight of their classmates.
Carefully researched settings with elaborate props and authentic details form the backdrop for each mini-play experience. Learning is exciting! Understanding is fun!
