South Shore Children's Museum

South Shore Children's Museum Cherishing America’s Memories through Exploration and Discovery!
The South Shore Children's Museum is where play and learning come together! The museum provides an opportunity for children to discover our nation’s rich past through hands-on experiences -- without ever having to leave the South Shore! Each exhibit teaches them about a different aspect of American history through exciting interactive play. From creating crafts to sharing stories, children will learn about America and have fun doing it!

Join us in our new and bigger space in the Walmart Wing at the Hanover Mall.

Mission: We will strive to achieve the goal of connecting Americans to their history in an interesting and pertinent way by using play and family involvement as means to instill the love of history. The case for play as a means for learning is documented in major educational research done all over the world. Not only is it therapeutic, it is also an avenue for children and their families to communicate effectively.

You won’t want to miss these funny ladies! Meet our headliner

Erika Rettman Welch

When this crazy-eyed wife, mom and business person isn’t perfecting her eye rolling or working out to her vast collection of 80s VHS tapes, she is making people laugh! Mostly at her, but Erika Welch does cast a wide net of hilarity. Erika performs her unique blend of 'Mom-com" in and around the Boston Suburbs in some bars without windows, PTO fundraisers and charity events. You may have seen her at the HAHA Momma Series or Boston Comedy Chicks Showcase. Her sarcastic, zen-like banter will have you adding new words and images to your dream board within minutes. She has been co-producing with Boston Comedy Chicks since at least 2009.

We are going to delay the opening of the museum today to allow mall staff to clear the parking lots. We will open at noon.
