Grown-up Tip: Not everyone can be a winner, this is an important lesson for kids to learn at a young age. It’s also important for children to learn how to treat their opponents with respect. Children learn the basics of good sportsmanship from the adults in their lives. Children who see adults behaving in a sportsmanlike way will gradually come to understand that the real winners treat everyone with respect and dignity — whether they win or lose a game.
Fee: Included with museum admission $1.00 off admission to those that come wearing red, white, and blue to represent the U.S.A.
