Children's Museum of Seattle showcases winter festivals from around the world

The Festival of Lights opened at the Children’s Museum of Seattle this week—showcasing what the home of a family celebrating Diwali would look like.

“Each week, the exhibit allows children to walk into the dwelling of a family celebrating a festival, including their kitchen and living room, a family craft table and a reading space,” the museum said in a statement.

The exhibit allows children to see how other cultures celebrate their own winter holidays and festivals.
