We created a space for you to create memories.

We invite you and your families to explore, learn and play together. We hope you create many fond memories during your visits and perhaps even learn something new about Bucks County.

The Bucks County Children’s Museum welcomes Dr. Naline Lai and Dr. Julie Kardos as our Directors of Parent Outreach!
“We understand parents often have questions about their children outside of office visits and often turn to the internet for answers. Because we are both practicing pediatricians as well as moms who stand at the bus stop, we know that there is a lot that goes on between yearly check-ups. To fill the gaps, the Two Peds in a Pod® blog/podcast site was born.”

Pediatricians Dr. Naline Lai and Dr. Julie Kardos are the co-founders, writers and illustrators of the popular pediatric advice blog Two Peds in a Pod®: “Practical pediatric advice for parents on the go.” Hundreds of pods and pod casts provide pointers for parents, which not only affect the physical, but also the emotional and mental health of their children. Featured on National Public Radio’s Here and Now,, The Bucks County Herald and quoted in Real Simple Magazine, the doctors are frequent speakers at a variety of venues. Most recently they addressed early childhood education teachers at the annual Delaware Valley Association for the Education of Young Children Conference and physicians at the annual Atlantic Regional Osteopathic Conference. Believers in the power of imaginative play in child development, Drs. Lai and Kardos join with the Bucks County Children’s Museum to help parents as they guide their kids on the incredible journey of childhood.

Dr. Lai is the mother of three children.

Dr. Kardos is the mother of three, including a set of twins.

Both Dr. Lai and Dr. Kardos are actively practicing pediatricians at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Care Network-Newtown.
