Friday the 13th

BOO! (Ok, I realize it’s March, but I miss Halloween…give me a break!)

I’m Lauren, and I’m the most recent addition to the CMOM Program Staff—that means I’m definitely giving Lonski a run for her money when it comes to the museum’s most awesome employee (just kidding…or am I?)! I’m super excited to be a part of this place—I remember loving CMOM as a kiddo myself, and being back in Memphis after a 3-year adventure in New York City, I’m thrilled to return to Tennessee as part of the best Children’s Museum ever! I promise to do my best keeping “y’all” (oh, how I’ve miss using such a great Southern word!) updated on CMOM’s latest programs and events.

CMOM's current traveling exhibit, "Children of Hangzhou: Connecting With China" (open through May 31) is an awesome way for kids and adults to learn about both traditional and modern Chinese culture through the eyes of 4 children living in Hangzhou. Every Saturday, I'll meet all you guys for a hands-on activity (think fun crafts or traditional games played by Chinese children) in our "China & You" program. Check out CMOM's website for even more information on all the cool stuff you can discover in this super exhibit. ( But hurry! It's only here until the end of May!

Come celebrate St. Patty's Day tomorrow (Saturday, March 14) the authentic way with our guest visitors--traditional Irish dancers! They'll be performing in the Malco at 1pm- you definitely don't want to miss it!

Don't forget to check out the online Calendar of Events ( to keep up with all the fun stuff we're doing here at CMOM! See ya soon!
