Travel the World at the Children’s World’s Fair

Embark on an exciting trek across the globe at the 17th Annual Children’s World’s Fair – Saturday, March 28 at the Louisiana Children’s Museum. Sponsored by Dow, the Children’s World’s Fair is a unique, daylong journey that explores cultural diversity in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (S.T.E.M.). 

Travelers will delight as they enjoy lively, cultural performances and explore the games, music, literature, native attire, crafts and flavors of destinations including:  Canada, Denmark, Guatemala, Israel, Nigeria, Romania, Tibet, and Venezuela. 

“Over the course of 17 years, the Children’s World’s Fair has introduced more than 175 countries and regions of the world to children and families in our community,” says Julia Bland, CEO of the Louisiana Children’s Museum. “The Children’s World’s Fair provides children with an appreciation of what is unique and universal to the customs of our global community — making our big world seem a little smaller.”

The intergenerational journey will begin with the Early Explorers Patron Party from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Guests will get a first look at the country exhibits and young globetrotters will receive an exclusive patron party treat bag.  Early Explorer packages begin at $100 for a family four-pack; individual tickets are $30. At 12:00 p.m., all adventurers are invited to join the fun. General admission tickets are $20 per person.  Advance general admission tickets for LCM members are $16 per person.  All general admission tickets purchased on event day are $20 per person.
