Chicago Children's Museum Tactile MapThermo-formed PVC Blister Pack
Way-Finding Tool Rewarded with Edible Treats
The Chicago Children’s Museum Tactile Map supplements the architectural site with clues and activities correlating with the architects’ plan. It is designed to enhance the patron experience; each “candy bar” reveals a unique journey through the museum, encouraging return visitors and new discoveries in the museum.
In conjunction with the mission statement of the Chicago Children's Museum, this way-finding tool will help supplement the education of children fostering curiosity and imagination. The program of each map varies for different ages and abilities: each journey has its own appropriate risks, challenges, and rewards.
Both children and adults are compelled to explore and discover the unknown, developing courage, logic, and social skills, drawing children and their parents/caregivers closer while navigating the museum’s many mysteries. As more time is spent in the museum more is revealed: deepening the experience of each successive visit.
