The Children's Museum of Manhattan is honoring the history and legacy of jazz in Harlem with a new exhibit.
The museum spotlights the artists Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, a famous tap dancer.
Organizers say the children learn by interacting with educators and creating their own music.
"The arts and creativity are a huge mission area for us. We really think bringing the arts - fine arts, music arts, every type of arts - to families at an early age is really important. So this is our attempt to bring jazz down for children to find their own way, their own access point to jazz so it's not something foreign or not something they don't understand. However, they want to understand it that's best for them," said Children's Museum of Manhattan Director of Exhibit Development Lizzy Martin.
The exhibit was created with the help of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem.
It will run until the end of the year.
