Good for You: Healthy Fun on the Run
Saturday, February 1 - Sunday, May 11
Creative Discovery Museum is pleased to announce that the extremely popular Good For You: Healthy Fun on the Run exhibit, which made its debut two years ago, will return to Chattanooga.
With childhood obesity ranking as one of the most important issues facing the United States, especially in Tennessee, the exhibit is part of the Museum’s health initiative to teach children and their families that living healthy and active lifestyles can be easy and fun. The bilingual exhibit was developed and produced by Creative Discovery Museum with a major gift of $300,000 from BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation and funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Recently, Good For You: Healthy Fun on the Run has visited the cities of Johnson City, Memphis and Nashville as part of its two-year tour.
The Wizard of Oz Children’s Educational Exhibition
We’re off to see The Wizard of Oz, as Creative Discovery Museum hosts the first-ever licensed traveling educational exhibit based on the beloved movie classic. The Wizard of Oz Children’s Educational Exhibit is set to open on Saturday, May 24, 2014.
Created by Miami Children’s Museum (MCM) and licensed by Warner Bros. Consumer Products, this interactive fantasy-adventure takes children and families over the rainbow to continue the celebration of the film’s 75th anniversary milestone.
The Wizard of Oz Children’s Educational Exhibition is a journey of self-discovery for the whole family! Guests travel from the Gale Farm to the colorful Land of Oz, where they explore Munchkinland, The Crossroads, The Witch’s Castle and The Emerald City before heading back over the rainbow to Chattanooga, because of course, “There’s no place like home.”
Along the way, everyone will experience the adventures of Dorothy and her friends as they find their way back to true happiness. Elements of the movie available only in this licensed exhibition include Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers, the characters everyone knows and loves from the film, and classic movie moments.
Visit Professor Marvel’s Wagon and create your own tornado in Dorothy’s bedroom. Explore Munchkin houses and meet Dorothy’s friends the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion and the Tin Man. Enter The Emerald City and create a “Horse of a Different Color,” play at the kaleidoscope and prism stations, but “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.” Next, climb the mountain to the Wicked Witch’s Castle to capture the Wicked Witch’s broom from Winged Monkeys. Finally, click your heels three times while reciting, “There’s no place like home,” as guests depart the Land of Oz.
The Wizard of Oz Children’s Educational Exhibition is a marvelous adventure of self-discovery for the whole family, only at Creative Discovery Museum, 321 Chestnut Street, in Chattanooga from Saturday, May 24—Sunday, September 7, 2014. Entrance to the exhibit is included in each regular admission to the Museum. Admission is $11.95 for adults and children.
The Wizard of Oz Children’s Educational Exhibition was created by Miami Children’s Museum and SPARKS, in conjunction with Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
