curious george let's get curious logoThe Curious George: Let’s Get Curious! exhibit Grand Opening is on Sunday, February 7 from 1-5pm.

The newest traveling exhibit, Curious George™: Let’s Get Curious! is SO BIG…it will take over much of the Museum’s first and second floors!

Enjoy exploring alongside the loveable monkey as he playfully guides them through his friendly neighborhood and blasts with them into outer space! The traveling exhibit, developed by Minnesota Children’s Museum and Universal Studios, allows children to discover their strengths in math, science, and engineering in a safe, yet exciting, atmosphere.

Based on the familiar characters in H.A. and Margret Rey’s classic stories and inspired by the animated television series on PBS KIDS, visitors can help George climb a building, set up shop at the produce stand, putt a hole of mini golf, have their picture taken with the rocket from George’s space adventure, build a whirligig in the country, and visit the Museum within the Museum.
