Now Through May 12, 2013
Letting curiosity and inquiry be their guides, children explore familiar buildings and locales from the “Curious George” books and television series on PBS KIDS in Curious George: Let’s Get Curious! The exhibit presents key concepts in science, math, and engineering, which are woven throughout the exhibit. Activities invite children to learn like Curious George – through direct experience and problem solving!

Enjoy the urban green space: rest or give a hug to a full-size George and take a picture! Our youngest guests will enjoy our busy wall activities for babies and toddlers.
- Mini Golf
Use pipes, ramps, funnels, turntables, bumpers, and force to experiment with physics and engineering as you putt through three holes of mini golf.

Climb into the rocket Curious George took on his space adventure! Catch a glimpse of George in his space suit then take a picture from the control station and email it home.
Take a vacation to the country and visit the farm. Experience cause and effect while using wind power to move yard art like whirligigs, windmills, windsocks, and wind chimes. Build your own whirligig and care for the farm animals.
