Dynamic H2O

Dynamic H2O

In the Sussman Environmental Center

All ages
Seasonal exhibit, Weather permitting

This summer, the Children’s Museum of Manhattan’s Sussman Environmental Center will be the hot place for children to cool off when it opens a splashy new water exhibit Dynamic H2O. With 800 sq. ft. of brand new hands-on interactives and cool colorful graphics, the outdoor exhibition will offer visitors a fun place to chill while they learn how New York City gets its water and the role water plays in our local environment.
 
A new, interactive water table will help children trace the path of New York City’s water as they play and explore. The experience begins with the water cycle up in the clouds. Small floating droplets allow children to follow the currents as they progress downstream, flowing past lily pads and an area where children can pretend to fish. Continuing along the stream, there are many hands-on opportunities for fun and discovery.
 
Children will also be able to pump water to the top of a skyscraper, create their own 92 mile aqueduct and construct a city at the water’s edge! They can even try their hand at some careers in water, playing the role of marine scientist, chemical engineer or sewage treatment worker.

This project was made possible in part by Carolyn Tisch Blodgett and Will Blodgett, and the Institute for Museum and Library Services. Additional support for education programs provided by the Catskill Watershed Corporation in partnership with the New York City Department of Environmental Protection.
