A star is born! Ten-year-old Amora, St. Louis, is the Missouri History Museum’s newest Kid Curator — an honor that’s perfect for a girl who loves to shine.
“Amora enjoys dance, performing, and learning,” her mother wrote when nominating her for the honor. “She does great in history and loves to help others.”
As Kid Curator, Amora enjoyed a private tour of the Missouri History Museum’s History Clubhouse along with her cousin, Afiya. Kid Curator Amora stars in a short video about the exhibit and is also the newest young spokesperson for the exhibit.
"I learned that people from different countries brought food to the World's Fair to share with others," said Kid Curator Amora.
Missouri History Museum created the History Clubhouse to be a special space just for families. The interactive area was designed with input from families, and uses hands-on exhibits and activities to inspire children’s interest in history.
"My favorite part was when we got to do the puppet show and toot the horn," Amora said. "Toot! Toot!"
Admission to the Museum and the History Clubhouse are both free, though the History Clubhouse has a ticketed, timed-entry system to ensure all guests have an opportunity to explore. Fans of the History Clubhouse can join the History Clubhouse Club , which includes members-only hours, exclusive family tours and events. The Missouri History Museum is located at 5700 Lindell Blvd., St. Louis, MO, 63112.
In addition to an exclusive tour of the Missouri History Museum, Kid Curators and their families receive free accommodations at the Drury Inn and Suites Forest Park, as well as a free goodie bag from Sprout & About and the Missouri History Museum.
