In 1973, Londoner Carol Johnston travelled with her family to the Boston Children’s Museum.
There, they were thrilled to discover a museum unlike any other; an engaging space, full of laughter and hands-on learning. Carol, a teacher herself, watched as her children transformed into astronauts, engineers, and artists. Carol became convinced this was the best way for children to learn. Carol returned home with a vision. Children in her city would have a museum of their own!
