Pizza parlor exhibit

A pizza parlor exhibit had its debut on Jan. 22 at Shelby's Marvin Memorial Library.

SHELBY -- Little Buckeye Children's Museum has announced the debut of a new traveling exhibit thanks to the generosity and support of The Shelby Foundation!

This new traveling exhibit is a pizza parlor exhibit, which will be available to the public in the children’s department of the Marvin Memorial Library in Shelby starting Jan. 22.

The Shelby Foundation Traveling Pizza Parlor Exhibit consists of a kitchen workspace, the front counter where “customers” can place their order, and a brick pizza oven. This exhibit is custom built to the perfect height specifications for a child and completely ADA accessible.

The display includes chef coats, pretend kitchen tools, and an array of pretend ingredients and toppings to make the perfect pizza. This exhibit also features a selection of pizza-themed children’s books chosen by the Marvin Memorial Library.

In this hands-on exhibit, children will be able to explore a career in the restaurant business and learn more about kitchen safety, and one of kids’ favorite foods – pizza.

They will also be encouraged to read the included children’s books on these topics, allowing them a new and interactive way to explore their favorite books.
