Young artists will be invited to go to the Art Studio and learn how to use pixels to create a masterpiece. Little chefs can also blend their own smoothies in Princess Zelda’s ‘Breath of the Wild’ cooking class. In addition, children can participate in a Pokémon Scavenger hunt, temporary tattoo station and a custom mask making table throughout the day.
Around the World
September 9 - September 20
Kids and families are encouraged to experience the magic of the word through song, dance and exploration in Asia, Europe and North and South America. Guests will join master traveler Phineas Figg in a journey around the globe and learn about international inventions at the Science Bar. In addition, young learners will be able to learn how to square dance on the Children’s Museum stage or make a map in the Art Studio.
Feature Exhibit: Curious George
Begins September 21
Curious George: Let’s Get Curious! will inspire kiddos’ natural curiosity as they discover science, math and engineering through interactive play with both George and his friend, The Man with the Yellow Hat. The Imaginators will perform the mini-musical Kid Detective, which takes audience members on a hunt as they follow clues with Kid Detective Jo as he tries to help his friend Bumble find his way home.
Feature Exhibit: Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit
