The Children’s Museum of Southern Minnesota announces the grand opening of a new exhibit, “A Healthy Me,” on Tuesday, April 9, at 10:00 am, with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:30 am.
“A Healthy Me” focuses on the well-being of children and families and includes a doctor’s office, giant sneezing nose, operating table, as well as a variety of activities that will explore mental health, medical technology, healthy lifestyle choices, dental health, and more.
This hands-on exhibit offers the Children’s Museum’s young visitors—and their adults—an opportunity to perform
surgery, explore germs, try out braces and wheelchairs, and role play as nurses, doctors, or parents. Museum visitors will
have an opportunity to check out how far germs can travel when we sneeze, see if you know how to properly wash your
hands, practice brushing a giant set of teeth, transplant an organ, or measure an intestine. The exhibit will be available
throughout the summer and into September of this year.
“Our goal is to inspire families to have conversations about their health. Our team has raised the bar on this play experience
and we are eager to bring it to our community, along with our group of sponsors,” says Deb Johnson, Senior Director of
Museum Experiences and Exhibits.
