Take trip around the country with Weebles exhibit at MCM

Take trip around the country with Weebles exhibit at MCMChildren and families are invited to take a trip across the United States in Miami Children’s Museum’s new educational “WEEBLES Coast to Coast” exhibit, Jan. 26 through May 5.

In the exhibit, created by Milwaukee’s Betty Brinn Children’s Museum in collaboration with Hasbro Inc., visitors will travel to each of the 50 states to explore U.S. geography, history and culture. Exhibit activities feature favorite American travel, sports and leisure pastimes, music from across the nation, and fun and important information about well-known people, places and historical events.

Children will power a riverboat down the Mississippi, hit a home run at Fenway Park, build the Saint Louis Gateway Arch, ride a mule into the Grand Canyon, snorkel in Hawaii, explore the Florida Everglades and much more.

Visitors will enjoy planning their “trip” with a giant U.S. map and a touch-screen kiosk featuring the country’s geographic regions, important state facts, national landmarks and popular tourist destinations. Murals of beautiful American landscapes provide the backdrop for engaging play areas that represent U.S. regions: Western, Mountain, Southwest, Midwest, Southeast and Northeast, and create memorable stops at the seaside, mountains, forest and desert. A special reading area is dedicated to U.S. geography, history, travel, and the idea that “a book can take you anywhere!”

The 2,500-square-foot exhibit is designed for children ages 4-10. Hands-on activities present opportunities for children to build cognitive and social skills, be physically active, curious and imaginative, and express themselves through music, movement and art. Educational content in the exhibit reflects developmental milestones for early learners set by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and national academic standards for school-age children.

The educational “WEEBLES Coast to Coast” exhibit is an adventure of self-discovery for the whole family, only at Miami Children’s Museum, 980 MacArthur Causeway on Watson Island, from Saturday, Jan. 26, through Sunday, May 5. Entrance to the exhibit is included in each regular admission to the museum. Admission is $16 for adults and children, $12 for Florida residents, free for children under 1 year and admission for members is complimentary.
