Curious George has moved to Baltimore and taken up residence at Port Discovery. The famous little monkey and his friend, the Man with the Yellow Hat, are part of a traveling exhibit opening this coming weekend (2/6) at Baltimore's famed children's museum, Port Discovery.
'Curious George: Let's Get Curious,' brings the most famous storybook monkey to life in a 1,500 square foot exhibit. The exhibit introduces young children to Curious George’s world and leads visitors on a fun, meaningful interactive math, science and engineering-based adventure. Port Discovery President, Bryn Parhman says, "A Curious George exhibit targeted to children ages three through seven can augment learning in this critical time period.
The exhibit's 3-D environment takes place in the neighborhood where Curious George lives with his friend, The Man with the Yellow Hat. Each area: the apartment building, produce stand, construction site, city park, mini golf, space rocket and farm has a specific teaching goal. Parchman adds, "The science and math activities in the exhibit will provide rich and meaningful context in which these skills can be learned and developed in a fun and engaging way."
