Statement of Religious Activity
Chesapeake Children’s Museum embraces a multicultural approach with regard to religious activities. We recognize childhood as a sensitive period in which families have the principal influence over the formation of religious beliefs. Our intention is to present a balanced worldview of religion within a cultural context, yet to refrain from involving visitors in religious practice. A decision to include the dogma, symbols, practices, music, deities, historical religious events, etc. of a particular religion is made with the consideration of the benefit to all our visitors. We endeavor to be sensitive to and welcome input from representatives of bona fide religious groups. Our aim is to make the museum a place where everyone feels welcome without risk of offending religious beliefs. We endorse a policy of leaving religious experience to respective religious institutions.
