This week's Collections object is the Globe-Trotters board game! Manufactured in the 1950s by Selchow & Righter Co., this board game allowed players to "visit" cities across the globe. The goal of the game was to visit as many cities throughout the world and make it back home first and with money to spare! Not only did this game encourage it’s players to learn world geography, but it also allowed them to learn basic information of countries and cities all around the world.
Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! For more info about Hide and Seek of the Week, click here.
We're all about learning through play.
Join Pinky, one of Please Touch Museum's resident puppets, on an inside look into all the fun, educational things happening at Philly's Children's Museum. This blog is not just about what we do at the museum, but about the educational philosophy behind why we do what we do.
