10 Things About Lynn Gorguze & New Children's Museum

Lynn Gorguze initially took her two children to the NCM when it was in the old warehouse during the 90's. Her family has been avid supporters ever since and Lynn joined the Board 5 years ago to give back in an even bigger way.

#6 For the past six years, a Title 1 school in North County has been bringing their entire school (K – 5) to the Museum. For many of these kids, the trip to the Museum is their one chance to leave their neighborhood and their first time to a museum.

#7 We hear from teachers how the children's experiences at the Museum have made them more inquisitive, more collaborative and more creative. It has been incredibly rewarding to watch these students grow with us.

#8 The Wonder Sound installation is comprised of 30+ rooms, tunnels, crawlspaces, and bridges to explore. It's great to see parents put their phones away and actively engage with their kids. We love it when parents can "unplug" and be present with their children.

#9 We have several large tables with wooden blocks and families spend hours building structures and towers. Sometimes we see a child wanting to go explore another part of the Museum, but the parent is busy putting the finishing touches on their 3-foot tower!

#10 It's fun to see folks dressed up in creative, whacky costumes at our Studio 200 on Island fundraiser. I love the energy and the casual "anything goes" attitude.
