Local 5 Live gets a preview of a traveling exhibit at Build for kids at Appleton.

Curious GeorgeMT: Let’s be curious! opens January 15, 2022 at the Building for Kids Children’s Museum (BFKCM). Based on familiar characters from classic stories by HA and Margret Rey, this new traveling exhibit inspires children’s natural curiosity as they explore science, math and engineering concepts through interactive, hands-on play.
The immersive exhibition environment takes place in the neighborhood where Curious George lives with his friend, the man in the yellow hat. Visitors can build a whirlpool at George’s Farm, launch a rocket into space, play mini-golf on George’s special course and more.
“We are thrilled to host this nationally traveling exhibit that supports our mission of inspiring discovery,” said Oliver Zornow, CEO of BFKCM. “By creating an immersive learning environment that taps into children’s natural curiosity, this exhibit showcases important STEM concepts in a fun and engaging way.”
Visitors can also use pulleys to help George climb the fire escape, design and build structures at the construction site, and count and weigh fruit at the produce stand.
Curious George: Let’s be curious! will be at the BFKCM until May 8, 2022. The exhibit is sponsored locally by the Appleton Noon Optimist Club, the Infant Welfare Circle of King’s Daughters Donor Advised Fund within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, and the Menasha Corporation Foundation. Additionally, the exhibit is nationally sponsored by PBS Kids and developed by the Minnesota Children’s Museum.
Building for children Children’s Museum is located at 100 West College Avenue in Appleton.
