    Kenya’s Kids invites visitors to discover what life is like for children in Kenya today, a country both technologically-advanced and filled with longtime traditions.  As families travel through five immersive environments, children can compare the similarities and differences between their lives and those of children in the East African country.
    Target Audience: Children ages 3-12 and their families.
