The WPA and the Brooklyn Children's Museum

Above: Two visitors enjoying an exhibit at the Brooklyn Children's Museum in New York, circa 1935-39. The museum's website explains that the WPA brought "more than 200 docents, artists, carpenters, printers, and clerks to work at the Museum during the Depression." Across the nation, a significant amount of WPA projects were designed for children (nursery schools, recreation programs, art classes, and more). Photo courtesy of FDR Presidential Library and Museum and the New Deal Network.
