Children’s Museum of La Crosse celebrates 100 years of Tinkertoys
Museum hosting 5 month long exhibit
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — One of your favorite toys growing up is hitting the century mark.
Tinkertoys turn 100 years old this year. To celebrate the Children’s Museum of La Crosse is hosting a 5 month long Tinkertoy exhibit. It kicks off this Saturday. The 1,5000 square foot “Build Your Imagination” exhibit includes giant replicas of the classic tinker toy construction sets.
Organizers say it’s a chance for kids to turn their imagination into an opportunity to learn.
“I’m hoping that it will spark that creativity or what can I create or what can I event because it’s all about invention. Children once they really get the loose parts and the tools can really use their imaginations and come up with a lot of wonderful things,” said executive director Anne Snow.
The Tinkertoy exhibit will be around until the end of may. The exhibit is included with regular museum admission or membership.
