Curious George: Let’s get Curious is here!

The Children’s Museum of Brownsville invites everyone to join them and celebrate the opening of the newest traveling exhibit, Curious George: Let’s Get Curious. Visitors will be able to explore the gallery that lets young children become part of the world of Curious George. Exhibit pieces focus on interactive math, science and engineering-based adventure while emphasizing the important role that parents and caregivers play in the lives of their children.

Based on the familiar characters in H.A. and Margret Rey’s classic stories, and inspired by the animated television series on PBS KIDS, the exhibit’s visual style is directly aligned with that of its source material. Activities can immerse kids in the w

orld of Curious George, as they can operate wheels to help George climb a building, sort and weigh fruits and vegetables at the market produce stand, use their science skills to 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 even visit a mini-museum dedicated to the long history of Curious George.

The exhibit’s grand opening will be held on Thursday, June 10, 2021, at the Ringgold Civic Pavilion adjacent to the Children’s Museum. It will remain there throughout the summer and up until Sunday, September 12, 2021. Whataburger will have a food truck on location and will be offering a free Whataburger to visitors from 10 am to 12 pm (or while supplies last).

Special thanks to the City of Brownsville, Brownsville Community Improvement Corporation, Brownsville Public Utilities Board, and Target for help in bringing this new exhibit to the museum.
