Are you ready to monkey around? The Woodlands Children’s Museum is going bananas over the arrival of the Curious George™: Let’s Get Curious! traveling exhibit coming Friday, February 11th through Saturday, May 14th, 2022. Curious George™ books and TV shows have delighted audiences for over 80 years with enlightening stories about a little monkey and his life lessons.
The new exhibit, Curious George™: Let’s Get Curious! inspires young children’s natural curiosity as they explore early science, math and engineering through hands-on interactive play in the immersive exhibit environment depicting the neighborhood where Curious George lives with his friend, The Man with the Yellow Hat. Visitors can operate wheels and pulleys to help Curious George climb a building, sort and weigh fruits and vegetables at the produce stand, use science skills to putt a hole of mini golf, visit the rocket that Curious George took on his space adventure, and much more.
The exhibit follows the television expansion of Curious George’s world, which includes many new characters and original locales, while maintaining the charm of the beloved books. The result is a three-dimensional, fully developed world that will resonate with visitors young and old.
“Like Curious George, children explore the world with immense curiosity and enthusiasm,” stated Angela Colton, Executive Director of the museum. “These are key concepts for scientific investigation and discovery, and the exhibit allows children to explore science and math in a fun, accessible way.”
The Curious George™: Let’s Get Curious! traveling exhibit is on loan from the Minnesota Children's Museum, who designed, developed and built the exhibit in partnership with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group. The exhibit’s content is based on educational standards developed by Minnesota Children’s Museum and an expert advisory panel to the PBS KIDS series, as well as national science and math standards for young children.
The Woodlands Children’s Museum is located in the Panther Creek Village Center at 4775 W. Panther Creek Drive, The Woodlands, Texas 77381.
