The new outdoor exhibit features and obstacle course and a palette fort. The play-exhibit is made completely from recycled materials.

"Our museum likes to demonstrate to kids, raised to think about things we may throw away," said MCM Director of Education Kia Karlen. "So we have many exhibits made out of materials and try to encourage kids, to think about creative reuse rather than just throw out a toy that doesn't work."
