JERSEY CITY, N.J., January 23, 2019 – Liberty Science Center will open the first-ever museum exhibit based on Disney Junior’s hit series, “The Lion Guard” which continues the epic storytelling of “The Lion King” and follows the adventures of Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, and his diverse group of friends as they unite to protect the Pride Lands.

Spotlighting important learning areas such as social and self-development, problem solving, creative thinking, and arts and culture, this one-of-a-kind exhibit will bring “The Lion Guard” story to life for young children and their families through hands-on activities and imaginative play.

• Team up with the members of the Lion Guard to explore the savanna and learn about Swahili culture;
• Help Bunga return stolen eggs to their nest while climbing and bouncing through baobab trees;
