Journey with the children from poverty to hope and experience new countries and cultures along the way in this outside exhibit. In over 2,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space, visitors will step inside homes, markets and schools—without getting on a plane. The Experience gives visitors a chance to see life for some children from a different perspective. Visitors will be given headsets and invited on an audio-guided journey through wheelchair-accessible and kid-friendly exhibit space, featuring replicas of the homes and environments of real children who have grown up under the weight of extreme poverty. The exhibit is open to the public and groups. This is a great opportunity for groups, families, and folks of all ages.
