JERSEY CITY, N.J., September 25, 2018 – Kids can put on a doctor’s jacket, pick up a stethoscope, and perform toy check-ups at Liberty Science Center this fall in the first-ever museum exhibit based on Disney Junior’s Peabody Award-winning television series, Doc McStuffins. Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit debuts at the Science Center on October 6, 2018.
The highly interactive English and Spanish bilingual experience will transport kids and families from LSC to Doc’s backyard clinic and the McStuffins Toy Hospital. There, families are invited to help Doc perform check-ups and diagnose toy patients while learning about healthy habits, compassion, and nurturing care.
The exhibit invites visitors to:
•Bring out their inner doctor by giving toys a check-up in the emergency room;
•Team up with Lambie, Doc’s assistant and cuddly best friend, in the nursery to take care of babies, and with Hallie, the caring hippo nurse, in the Operating Room;
•Visit the Pet Vet to wash, brush, and X-ray toy animals;
•And so much more!
“Doc McStuffins serves as a great role model encouraging children to explore the importance of taking care of their own bodies as well as caring for others,” said Paul Hoffman, President and CEO of Liberty Science Center. “Through the exhibit’s imaginative play, we hope our youngest visitors will learn more about health, science, and medicine while envisioning themselves in STEM-related careers.”
Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit will be at Liberty Science Center from October 6, 2018, through January 27, 2019. Tickets cost $22.75 for adults and $18.75 for children. Please visit lsc.org for more information.
This exhibit was produced by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Disney Junior and presented by Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health.
