“Boston Children’s Museum is truly a gem with a dedicated staff who have created a world of exploration, fantasy and creativity for children of all ages. I congratulate them on this national recognition,” said U.S. Representative Mike Capuano (Mass.).
“Boston Children’s Museum is a leader in education and innovation, positively impacting the lives of children and their families throughout our community. As Boston Children’s Museum celebrates 100 years, I congratulate them on this tremendous and well-deserved honor,” said U.S. Representative Stephen Lynch (Mass.).
Medal winners are selected from nationwide nominations of institutions that demonstrate innovative approaches to public service, exceeding the expected levels of community outreach. Later this year, StoryCorps – a national nonprofit dedicated to recording, preserving, and sharing the stories of Americans – will visit Boston Children’s Museum to document stories from the community.
