CLEVELAND — Kids and their families can travel in time with a new seasonal exhibit opening at the Children’s Museum of Cleveland.

The museum’s new ‘Centuries of Childhood: An American Story’ exhibit is opening on Saturday, April 20, and will remain on display through August of this year.

The exhibit explores what life is like for five children throughout American history: Onatah, a 7-year-old Iroquois girl from the Great Lakes region, Gregory, a 10-year-old Colonial apprentice, Clara, a pioneer girl heading West with her family, Jacob, a Jewish boy living in Cleveland in the 1880s and Michael, a mid-century African American boy moving to Chicago from the deep South.

The exhibit will feature five distinct environments, clothing and artifacts from each character’s time period.

The Children’s Museum is open every day from 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., and is located at 10730 Euclid Avenue in University Circle. Admission is $7 per person and babies 11 months and younger are free.
