The Westchester Children's Museum will hold its signature educational and recreational Explore-a-thon event from 9 a.m. to noon Sunday, June 3, at Playland Boardwalk and Rye Town Park.
The event is designed to offer a real children's museum experience while raising funds to build the first children's museum at Rye Playland. Explore-a-thon is an interactive day that combines play, experimentation and discovery for children and their families.
Children and their families will follow an interactive route that traverses Rye Town Park and the Playland boardwalk, where they will find hands-on Exploration Stations, which are modeled after future museum exhibits. The route takes everyone just steps from the future museum site.
Tickets are $5 per person. To order tickets, go to www.discoverwcm.org/exploreathon.cfm.
Joint family passes and sponsorships are available for $75. For $75, guests receive a family pass for themselves and another family.
Individuals and corporations can also sponsor a child or group of children. Those who sponsor other families or children will be called "Explorer Buddies" and will be paired up with a child from a local children's organization. Explorer Buddies are encouraged to donate $75 per child or $750 for a group and attend the event, but they themselves are not required to attend. To sponsor a child or group of children, go to www.discoverwcm.org/exploreathon/signup.cfm.
Rye Playland is on the shores of Long Island Sound, at 1 Playland Pkwy., Rye.
