Message From The President

Let's hear it for the dads!

Dear friend,

I really enjoyed seeing so many other dads at CMEE’s Big Truck Day! A few Museum members even remarked on the number of fathers with one grandmother commenting, “When it’s an art or music program, it’s easy for dads to opt out, but trucks are supposed to be ‘manly’ dads want to see them too.” At CMEE, we certainly see far more moms than dads even on weekends, and the comments during Big Truck Day made me wonder if our experience was typical of other museums.

Science Connections

CMEE receives $55K to launch after school science program

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that the Museum was awarded a $55,000 grant from Institute of Museum and Library Services. This funding will be used to launch Science Connections in early 2016, an after school program designed to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education for children and their families through hands-on, interactive experiences.

Families with children ages 5 to 9 who are interested in learning more about the program can contact CMEE's Education Coordiantor, Liz Bard at or by calling 631.537.8250 x 207.

My Favorite Things

CMEE's Education Coordinator, Liz Bard

We were lucky enough to catch CMEE's Education Coordinator, Liz Bard, during a rare moment of downtime. Between creating an amazing lineup of classes each month, sharing the Museum's programming with other area groups, and interacting with Museum patrons each and every day (not to mention planning a wedding!), Ms. Bard gives new meaning to the word "busy." Even with a packed schedule, she was happy to share her three favorite things about CMEE:

Pizza and Pajama Night – The “after hours” makes it really feel like a special time at the Museum and you really get to know the kids and the families.

Outreach Programs – I love our outreach programs and interacting with other groups in the area. Many of those children are not able to visit the Museum, so to be able to bring play to them is a great opportunity and experience. 

The New Food Truck/Kitchen Exhibit: There are so many opportunities for learning on so many levels! Sorting, imaginative play, sharing and taking's an amazing addition to the Museum. And, personally, I love food.
