Extra, extra, read all about it. The Children’s Museum of the Upstate-Greenville (TCMU) has a new permanent exhibit: The Book Nook.
We got a sneak peek ahead of its opening on Saturday, March 11. Here’s how you and your kiddos can Try This.
What we tried (with pricing)
Located on the museum’s third floor, The Book Nook is dedicated to literacy and learning — featuring bookshelves stocked with books for varying ages, reading levels, and languages.
Museum tickets start at $12 (members get free admission).
What not to miss
The exhibit’s entry sign that reads, “Time to relax in a comfy space,” means what it says. Crawl or climb into one of the floor-to-ceiling book nooks, each with cozy lighting and cushions.
What we’re still talking about
The wall art — we felt immersed in a dark, fantasy-like forest, thanks to the hand-painted designs throughout the space. Plus, we’re feeling inspired to read on a whole different level after being surrounded by these quotes:
- “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” — Frederick Douglass
- “Reading is a passport to countless adventures.” — Mary Pope Osborne
- “Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.” — Margaret Fuller.
