Bring the family and experience the wonders of the Philippines, as the Chicago Children’s Museum (CCM) features the Philippines during its “Passport to the World” series. The Museum will host displays of Philippine crafts and exhibits, as well as interactive productions by native performers and artists, during the weekend of June 11-14, 2009. The CCM’s “Passport to the World” series showcases the arts and traditions of Chicago’s many ethnic groups to provide opportunities for museum visitors to better understand Chicago’s unique multicultural community. Previous “Passport to the World” exhibits showcased Chicago’s Korean, Persian and American Indian communities. This will be the second time that the series celebrates the Philippines. The weekend celebration begins on Thursday evening, June 11, 2009. The exhibits and performances will then continue Saturday and Sunday (June 13-14).
