“Little C’ville” comes to the Discovery Museum

The Virginia Discovery Museum, the DTM’s go-to place for the wee ones, has a new exhibit: Little C’Ville.

Think of it as local urban geography lesson for kids. There’s a play Panera, a play Paramount Theater, etc. The Panera comes complete with bread trays, cash registers, tables and chairs, and kids will be able to bake their own bread and make a sandwich. Panera, of course, is a sponsor. To kick off the new exhibit, there’s a private opening September 27 at 6:30pm with drinks donated by Commonwealth Restaurant and Bar, including a signature drink, the Discovertini, and a Bread Bar provided by Panera with support from Harvest Moon.

β€œThe support of donors, both individuals and corporations, has enabled us to make these improvements, and we are extremely grateful to them,” said Amy Wicks-Horn, the museum’s director, adding, β€œWe are committed to seeking better ways to deliver early childhood experiences that will get children ready for school and bring families together and we invite you to join us! β€œ
