Want to learn more about this new cultural and educational institution in Potsdam? The North County Children’s Museum opened its doors to the public in 2018 after successfully completing a one-million dollars capital campaign. Renowned exhibit designers, Alchemy Studio, which have worked for the Smithsonian, completed the interactive exhibits. Come see how the Children’s Museum lives up to its motto: “Where children play to learn, and grown-ups learn to play!”
