Adventures with Clifford the Big Red Dog
Starting on May 4 and running through Sept. 8, 2013, guests can join Clifford, Emily Elizabeth and the other residents of Birdwell Island in a new traveling exhibit. This exhibit teaches guests Clifford’s Big Ideas – 10 simple, tangible life lessons designed to help children navigate their world. Clifford’s home on Birdwell Island comes to life with playful activities and delightful environments, giving children and parents a chance to explore Clifford’s world first-hand.
Blue Man Group – Making Waves
From May 25 through Sept. 2, 2013 this 1,500 square foot exhibit, designed to bring together science and art, will take the whole family through a multi-sensory exploration of the science of sound. Luminescent objects represent how sound would look if we could see it and unique Blue Man Group instruments teach guests how air and other mediums propagate sound. Ultimately, this colorful journey encourages collaborative learning and will enhance the whole family’s appreciation and understanding of quality light and sound.
From May through Spring 2014, follow the story of meerkat matriarch Klinky and her clan as they take on the challenges of living in the unforgiving Kalahari Desert.
