Featured in the Back Gallery - The Back Gallery exhibit changes several times a year
As Americans one of our most important rights is the Freedom of Expression. The Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression and the Virginia Discovery Museum have teamed up to bring you a hands-on exhibition that teaches about this important right. Come learn about the history of free expression in America and how the media has had an important role. Use your right to express yourself through music or on your own television show.
As part of the exhibit, you can experience how Braille and Sign Language are used as a means of free expression and communication.
We are very pleased and honored that our new children’s book, Meet Me At The Mountain is featured in this special exhibit at the Virginia Discovery Museum.
MMATM highlights how persons with differing abilities often do amazing things to overcome life’s challenges.
