1996 Best Museum, Software for Kids

The Computer Museum

Now you can double-click before you buy. On June 29, this museum opened a wonderful gallery that houses 14 terminals, all of which have access to 50 unabridged CD-ROM titles for children, plus plenty of additional recommendations. Families can peruse all the latest software for kids 2 to 12 years old for as long as they like. The excellent selection is the work of author-experts Cathy Miranker and Alison Elliot.
