Arthur’s™ World, the national touring exhibition based on the PBS Children’s television series is coming to the Youth Museum this Fall! Exhibit highlights include:
Mr. Ratburn’s Classroom – Join in the classroom activities with Arthur™ and friends as they enter a spelling bee or explore life under a microscope. Student cubbies let you peek in and guess which one belongs to whom. Take a seat at your favorite character’s desk and role-play school life with Arthur and his teacher, Mr. Ratburn.
Elwood City Library – This is Arthur’s neighborhood gathering place where children discover and explore the world of books while helping D.W.™ sign up for a library card, voting for their favorite Arthur book, and choosing a book Binky would like to read. It’s a great place for families to curl up for a few minutes with a book.
Backyard Sleepover – The backyard offers children the experience of a sleepover with: sleeping bags, pillows, books, and games. Children can join in the sleepover fun with Arthur, Buster, and The Brain as they tell spooky stories, crawl in and out of a cluster of tents, make shadow puppets and more!
Many of the exhibits and classes at the Youth Museum are funded in part by the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
The exhibit and tour are created by Boston Children’s Museum, in collaboration with Marc Brown and WGBH-TV, the Boston PBS station that produces the Arthur TV show.
