Deep down we all want to be heroes. Ignite a passion for changing the world around you through the powerful and remarkable stories of three extraordinary 20th-century children—Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges and Ryan White.

Discover how they used the power of words, action and voice to make a positive difference in our world at The Power of Children: Making a Difference—the Springs Preserve’s new traveling exhibit. Recommended for ages 8+.

In the exhibit, you can:

  • Be transported through live theatrical performances
  • Step into replicas of Ryan White's bedroom, Ruby Bridges' classroom and Anne Frank's annex
  • Learn how you and your family can make a difference

This exhibition has been made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It is brought to you by Mid-America Arts Alliance. The Power of Children was organized by The Children’s Museum, Indianapolis, IN.
