Retired in 2015 after a successful run, Children Just Like Me™ was a 2,500-square-foot national traveling exhibit from Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal about kids around the world and the cultures that shape their lives. Eleven vignettes took young visitors around the world to meet their peers on six continents. Compelling life-size cut-outs of each child stood alongside authentic three-dimensional representations of their homes and surroundings. Each child’s language, food, games, music, pets, clothing and much more were discovered through multi-sensory interactives in each area.
Based on DK Publishing’s award-winning book by the same name, Children Just Like Me™ showcased the unique diversity of the world’s children while exploring the common bonds they share.
