The Minnesota Children’s Museum exhibit is a journey through some favorite stories – Twin Cities
Peter Rabbit, a missing puppy named Spot, and a cookie-loving mouse are among the stories in a new exhibit that opens September 25 at the Minnesota Children’s Museum.
“Storyland: A Trip Through Childhood Favorites” is described as an immersive exhibit for children ages 8 and under. It was originally created by MCM.
“Storyland” features seven popular and award-winning picture books: “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” by Beatrix Potter, “The Snowy Day” by Ezra Jack Keats, “Where’s Spot?” by Eric Hill, “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” by Laura Numeroff, “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault, “Abuela” by Arthur Dorros and “Tuesday” by David Wiesner.
According to MCM, each story is transformed into a three-dimensional play space where children enter and interact with the story and its characters. Here are some highlights:
Children explore Peter Rabbitaround the world while searching for lost rabbit items, collecting vegetables and playing in Peter’s Burrow.
“The snowy day” is a wintry world after a fresh snowfall.
“Where’s Spot?” “ is a Spot the Dog research logbook. This exhibition presents sounds and images through animated interactive walls.
In “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom”, children sort and match the letters and send them to the coconut palm, dip a paintbrush into a well filled with water to write letters and beat rhythms with steel drums while singing the story.
The exhibition will run until January 2. Tickets cost $ 14.95, available at mcm.org/tickets. Masks are mandatory for all visitors aged 5 and over. Check the website for more COVID-19 restrictions.
