What is a Children's Museum?

The number one question posed to those of us at Kid Time is, "What exactly is a children's museum?" The fact that so many people are unaware of the concept is understandable; The word "museum" conjures up images of quiet spaces with exhibits behind glass; places designed for looking, not touching. Adding children to that concept seems unnatural. In fact, a children's museum is the exact opposite of a traditional museum in that it's a place where kids can learn through play and exploration.
