Boston Children’s Museum turns 100

“. . . after some years of mulling over what a children’s museum might be, it finally came to me that the answer was in our name: In contrast to art and history and science museums, which were about something, children’s museums were for somebody. In that sense we were a client-centered organization. We were for children and their parents, teachers, and other caregivers.”

MICHAEL SPOCK, Boston Children’s Museum director (1962-85)
