Project: Publix & Farm Exhibits

Publix Grocery & Farm Exhibition

Glazer Children’s Museum

Museum EXP spearheaded the renovation of these two spaces to teach children how food travels from a farm to their table. Supported by Publix grocery stores, the exhibition serves as a model for Publix partnerships at other museums.

Visitors learn about farming, animal care, and financial literacy through pretend play, interactive experiences, and open-ended exploration. Museum EXP developed and prototyped interactive exhibits, including a scent station, animal sounds, and sensory-friendly tactile and latch boards. Museum staff fabricated some components in order to stretch the budget.

Why this project excites us:

Working collaboratively with museum staff and the Publix team made the finished product really fun, engaging, and unique.
