My kids have always been totally obsessed with Curious George. My daughter has been watching him for over 7 years on TV, and each of her brothers have also loved how naughty, silly, and smart he is.
Curious George is swinging into the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. From October 5, 2013 until January 5, 2014, there is a new Curious George exhibit available to visit. It is included with your regular admission to the museum, and adds a lot of fun and educational opportunities to your day.
The exhibit includes several stations of interactive and interesting activities for kids to explore their world and practice math and science skills. My kids all loved it. From the 17 month old to the 8 year old, there was something for all of them.
This section of the exhibit was great for my little guy. There are several smaller toys for little guys, some hidden animals in the tree, and this section doubles as a bench for weary parents!
One of the places my kids enjoyed playing in was the market area. There was pretend money, a working scale, and lots of fresh-looking plush fruit. There were sorting games, measurement exercises, and lots of dress up opportunities!
There is even a party room available! You can have a birthday party for your child, complete with a visit from Curious George, crafts, a helper specifically with you to make sure your party is a blast, story time, and more.
Of course, no visit to the museum is complete without a visit to the gift shop! This one has so much Curious George goodness, I couldn’t even begin to tell you all about it. I foresee some Christmas shopping in my near future.
