DORA & DIEGO: LET'S EXPLORE EXHIBIT
Get ready for adventure at McWane Science Center in the new exhibit Dora & Diego—Let’s Explore! The exhibit features beloved characters Dora and Diego from Nickelodeon’s hit preschool series Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Go!, along with their friends Boots, Map, Backpack, Isa, Tico, and of course Swiper, now in their own exhibit for children to explore as they learn and play along.
This new, interactive traveling exhibit, created by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis in partnership with Nickelodeon, and presented by the WellPoint Foundation, will make its way to McWane Science Center on May 26!
Dora & Diego: Let's Explore! features:
Dora’s friend Isa the Iguana demonstrates how to take care of flowers, plants, and animals. Visitors can tour Isa’s Garden to touch musical flowers, interact with bird, butterfly, and insect puppets, and pretend-fly with toddler-sized bird and butterfly wings. Even the littlest visitors will enjoy smelling the flowery scents and picking soft-fabric posies.
Dora is a good friend to Tico the squirrel and young visitors are invited to be a good friend to Tico too. Tico needs help picking nuts from the tree for a family picnic. Children can play along with Swiper to swipe the nuts and watch as they shoot up and over to fill Tico’s basket. Visitors can help Tico fill up his car with nuts so he can begin his journey.
ANIMAL RESCUE CENTER
Young children can practice caring and helping rainforest animals in Diego’s Animal Rescue Center. Kids can be an animal rescuer, like Diego, as they diagnose and address an animal’s problem from the Scanner bed, bandage and apply cold packs at the First-Aid Station, and bathe stuffed animals at the Care Station.
Children will explore a rainforest to locate animals. Active play is encouraged as children swing across the Bobo Brothers’ monkey bars, crawl through a fallen tree, climb across Jaguar Mountain, and jump or hop across the River!
On the way to the Purple Planet, Dora and Boots encounter some interesting star groupings. Children and their families are invited to help identify the patterns made out of stars by inserting star shapes to light-up a constellation
THE PURPLE PLANET
Take a trip to the Purple Planet with Dora and Boots and explore purple houses! Two Purple Planet houses invite young visitors to climb inside and slide down the surface of the Purple Planet.
In the Pirate Ship, kids can join the Pirate Piggies crew and dress like a pirate to pretend-play sailing the ship and divvying up the treasure. Visitors can raise and lower the Pirate Piggies’ flag, look through the telescopes to spot the treasure chest, and divvy up the coins into the Pirate Piggies’ banks and help them share the treasure.
Dora’s outer-space friends want to return to the Purple Planet and need help getting there. Aboard the Rocket Ship, kids are invited to put on a spacesuit, pilot the ship, assemble a puzzle of Dora and Boots, and test their memory with images of colorful planets as they help Dora and Boots take their outer-space friends home.
