An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until September 30, 2018
Swingin’ in Hartford with Curious George, everyone’s favorite mischievous monkey! Step into the whimsical neighborhood of Curious George in this exciting traveling exhibit that explores math, science, and engineering. You will have a blast exploring physics while mini golfing, take on engineering while designing a building, and so much more! Curious George: Let’s Get Curious is a museum within a museum where the fun never stops.
Inside the Exhibit:
- Apartment Building
Operate wheels to move Curious George on pulleys from window to window. Climb the fire escape and climb inside to play with color, light and shadow.
- Sidewalk Produce Stand
Play customer or salesperson and explore shape, sorting, weighing and counting with fruit and vegetables.
- Construction Site
Design a building, make use of a bounty of building materials and get to work constructing different structures and using machines to move materials.
- City Park
Enjoy the urban green space: rest or give a hug to a full-size Curious George and take a picture! Our youngest visitors 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.
- Space Rocket
Step up to the rocket Curious George took on his space adventure! Pose for a picture with George in his space suit and e-mail it home.
Take a vacation to the country and visit the farm. Experience cause and effect and use wind power to move yard art like whirligigs, windmills, windsocks, and wind chimes. Build your own whirligig or windsock and care for the farm animals.
- Museum Within the Museum
Learn new things about Curious George when you visit the Museum within the Museum. Follow H.A. and Margret Rey’s work, the escape from France to safety during World War II that saved the Curious George manuscript, and Curious George throughout the years.
