        The Louisiana Children’s Museum thanks the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation for its presenting sponsorship of the 2014 Children’s World’s Fair. From the drums of South Africa inviting movement and dance – to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef being populated by hand-made fish – to the art and music drawing us into India’s pavilion – the 2014 Children’s World’s Fair was a smashing success!
