Exhibit Expansion Fundraising Continues
Everbright, first of its kind Children's    Museum in Michigan

Hip, Hip, Hooray!  The Everbright has been installed!We are super excited to be adding this totally cool Exhibit to the CMBC!

The picture to the right is of an Everbright, which is similar to a large lite-Brite except it has no removeable parts.  The Everbright has disks that can be turned to create over 250 different colors which allows visitors to create any picture imaginable.


The CMBC is the first children's museum in Southwest Michigan to have an Everbright.

Future Exhibits include a Rig A Ma Jig exhibit, a Space Capsule, a Static Dome, Coldwater community play buildings, and improvements to current exhibits.

Please consider making a donation to the CMBC for Exhibit Expansion so that we may continue to provide children of Branch County and the surrounding area with new, fun and educational exhibits.  Visit Paypal by clicking the "Join Us" button to make a donation.

The Table is super fun and teaches kids about motion, speed, friction gravitational pull, and kinetic energy."We are really excited about the spin table at the museum.  It's so much fun to watch kids explore the exhibits," said Kayla Gray, President, CMBC.
