Chicago’s new Children’s Museum of the American Kid will be open for business, but the museum’s opening isn’t just about celebrating its 40th anniversary.
It’s about how the museum was built, as well as the lives of the people who built it.
Museum director Michael Stahler and chief curator of the museum, Barbara Dannemiller, talk to the media at the new museum in Chicago on Tuesday.
Stahler said the museum will be “a place that celebrates the children’s story of the Americas and how they have shaped our world.”
The museum will feature more than 150 exhibits and more than 600 children’s books, films and video games.
“The Museum of The America Kid will continue to be the first museum in the United States to explore and celebrate the role of children in the world, and the impact of their stories on our world,” Stahlers told ABC News.
It’s not the only new museum the museum has announced this year.
The museum is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2019.
The museum opened in May of 2010, and its first exhibit is a portrait of President Ronald Reagan, the last president to serve in the White House.

The new Children t Museum and Childrens Center is the brainchild of Mayor Bill De Blasio and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who has pledged to build the museum as part of the citys plan to revitalize its core.
The Chicago Childrens s Museum, designed by Emanuel, is in Wicker Parker.
The Childrens Park is in Chicagos historic Loop neighborhood.
The first childs museum opened to the public in Chicago nearly 50 years ago.
The museum was the brain child of Chicago architect, John Jacobs and Chicago’s Emanuel administration.
Jacobs’ groundbreaking work is remembered for his plans for the city’s parks and playgrounds.
His work is often considered the father of the modern urban playground.
He created the city of Chicago with the hope that people would enjoy their surroundings, but he also envisioned the world as an art form, Jacobs said.
The idea of the world in a playground was the foundation for the Children t, Jacobs told ABCNews.
“He believed children should be able to learn in an environment that they liked.
It gave birth to the first childrens museums.”
The Children s museum will also feature new exhibits about the people, places and events that shaped the world that Jacobs imagined.
