Curious George: Let’s Get Curious!

Inside the Exhibit

Minnesota Children’s Museum is a national leader in interactive learning and educational programming for children’s museums. The Museum has designed and built numerous exhibits including Adventures with Clifford The Big Red DogÔ, The Amazing CastleÔ, Go FigureÔ and Geo-Zoooom that travel to children’s museums and libraries throughout North America. The Curious George: Let’s Get Curious! exhibit is sponsored by 3M.
