Black History Museum Wins Parent's Pick Award

 DETROIT, MI – The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History has won the 2010 Nickelodeon Parents’ Pick Award for Best Museum in the metropolitan Detroit region.  Runners up include Greenfield Village, the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum, The Detroit Science Center, and Detroit Institute of Arts.

 

Nickelodeon's ParentsConnect hosted its third annual Parents' Picks Awards, an annual nationwide online poll that allows parents to vote for their favorite family places, products and parenting tips, with voting taking place from July 7 through August 31, 2010.  ParentsConnect announced the winners online on September 15, 2010.  This is the second straight year the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History has won for Best Museum.

 

The nominee in each category with the most votes was crowned the 2010 Parents Picks Awards winner and has been established as the best product, tip or place in that category. To announce their win, they received a "Parents' Picks 2010 Winner" seal to display and will be featured as the winner on Nickelodeon's ParentsConnect site until the 2011 awards, so parents everywhere will know that they are the best of the best.  

 

The award comes at an exciting time for children’s programming at the museum.  Nomkhulbulwane, a 9-foot tall, 1-ton elephant sculpture made of recycled tires from South Africa that is touring the world as part the “Human Elephant Project” will “visit” (and be located in front of the museum at Warren Avenue) October 20 – 31.  The museum will host a children’s story time program with Nomkhulbulwane on Saturday, October 23 at 11 am.  Additionally, on Sunday October 31 from 3 – 7:30 pm over 2,000 youth, parents and community leaders will participate in an A Night to Dream About Harvest Fest celebration featuring rock-climbing, face-painting, arts & crafts, games, prizes, music, gift bag giveaways and more.  In keeping with the museum’s community focus, both events are free and open to the public, though tickets for the Harvest Fest should be picked up in advance at the museum’s information desk.  For more information on these and other events, please call (313) 494-5800.
