The Museum of Science & History presents Neighborhoods

August 31st, 2018 · Leave a Comment

Neighborhoods help define Jacksonville as a city and many residents engage with the city on a neighborhood level. To mark the 50th anniversary of Jacksonville’s consolidation, the Museum of Science & History (MOSH) is hosting a new signature exhibit, Neighborhoods, showcasing the city’s many neighborhoods.

The exhibit, opening Sept. 8, features illustrated text panels and interactive experiences that help guests trace the historical development of the neighborhoods in Jacksonville, explore the qualities it takes to maintain a vibrant and sustainable community and learn about the work that city government and groups of citizens do to revitalize and support the city’s neighborhoods.

The exhibit features several interactive elements, such as a “Jaxsaw” puzzle that guests can piece together to discover the names and locations of various neighborhoods, a “Make a Neighborhood” land-use activity, a Duval County wall map on which guests can place sticky dots to indicate their connections to their neighborhoods, a Neighborhood Trivia Challenge, a Neighborhood 411 touch-screen program, and a Neighborhood Scrapbook touch screen that will showcase photos and maps of neighborhoods.

In addition to the in-house interactive elements, the Museum hopes to empower people to share their stories with a social media campaign that encourages guests to contribute by posting photos of unique, important or special places in their neighborhoods on social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) using #MOSHneighborhoods and tagging @MOSHJax. Selected photos will be shown in the exhibit.

Neighborhoods is presented in partnership with the City of Jacksonville, Jacksonville Aviation Authority and many community organizations. The exhibit is on display through Sept. 6, 2019 and is included with Museum admission. For tickets and more information, visit www.theMOSH.org.
