Parents of young children have probably seen the new Curious George television series on PBS. The cartoon has gained a loyal following for its positive messages and an animation style that seems a little less hyperactive than some of the ruling cartoons of the day. This week, a traveling exhibit based on the cartoon comes to The Health Adventure inside Pack Place.
Curious George: Let's Get Curious combines sets and characters from the TV show with interactive lessons on math, science and engineering. The exhibit targets children in the 3-7 year age range.
Also on display at The Health Adventure are two other programs, Toys, The Inside Story and Moneyville. The children's museum is a real treasure for families are looking for a way to spend the day with their children. There are also some ice cream shops and toy stores in the Downtown shopping district.
