‘Touch everything!’ After a decade of planning, Ellicott Mills Children’s Museum set to open in Ellicott City

April 13, 2022

There is only one rule in the new Ellicott Mills Children’s Museum in Ellicott City: “Touch everything.” That’s according to Pat Greenwald and Anne Schoenhut, co-chairs of the education committee at the Howard County Historical Society. “Everything we have in there are things to teach and touch,” Schoenhut said. “In the store, [children] can weigh beans or write a letter and post it at the post office. At school, they can pretend to be the teacher.” Fred Campbell, executive director of the historical society, said the new museum is meant to be a tactile museum.
