Curious George™: Let’s Get Curious! is now open at the Youth Museum. Introducing young children into the world of Curious George, the exhibit leads visitors on a fun, meaningful interactive math, science and engineering-based adventure while it emphasizes the central role that parents and caregivers play.
The exhibit is based on the familiar characters in H.A. and Margret Rey’s classic stories and the television series produced by Imagine Entertainment, WGBH Boston and Universal Studios Family Productions that can be seen PBS KIDS® (check local listings).
The exhibit, which was designed, developed and built by Minnesota Children’s Museum in partnership with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group, encourages children’s natural curiosity as they explore early science, math and engineering through hands-on play.
The immersive exhibit environment takes place where Curious George and The Man with the Yellow Hat live. Insatiably curious, George lives to find new things to discover, touch, spill and chew. Learn like George – through direct experiences and problem solving.
The Curious George: Let’s Get Curious! exhibit is sponsored by 3M.
