Ben and his wife Bernice wanted the Sharpsteen Museum exhibits to be accessible to children and adults alike so they made special accommodations to give kids up-close visibility. Part of the magic of the Sharpsteen Museum is its kid-friendly displays and exhibits. When Ben Sharpsteen and his talented team were creating the museum much thought was put into making history fun as well as educational. There are model trains, pop-up geysers with fun cranks to turn, and amazingly detailed dioramas and much, much more!
