Pimms'O'Clock with Percussion Play at the Louisiana Children's Museum

On a perfect New Orleans evening, the Louisiana Children’s Museum made a memorable setting for a drinks reception to celebrate the close of the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) InterActivity 2023. Percussion Play invited attendees for a glass of Pimms on the museum’s outdoor music area, ‘the music hummock,’ which is home to no less than eleven Babel Drums alongside the new Liberty Bells and Cattail Chimes.

The evening allowed the team from Percussion Play (a Business Supporter of the ACM) to demonstrate the outdoor musical instruments and take the time to discuss the benefits of outdoor musical play with the children's museum professionals. The two new 'Inspired by Nature' instruments, are both perfect for playful interactions along nature trails, as stand-alone exhibits, or incorporated into a sensory zone.

Many fascinating conversations were had, with numerous ACM members sharing their plans for their own museum’s outdoor spaces. It was plain to see that following the conference, many will now consider making grounds with or for music.
