Double your fun this fall with two new exhibits at the Great Lakes Science Center

Flycycle at the Run! Jump! Fly! exhibition.

Great Lakes Science Center is doubling the fall fun for families with kids of all ages when it opens a unique pair of hands-on special exhibitions, “Curious George: Let’s Get Curious” and “Run! Jump Fly! Adventures in Action.” 

Perhaps no other character from children’s literature better represents the Science Center’s spirit of “Stay Curious” than Curious George.  The little monkey with the insatiable curiosity has captured the imagination of millions of children and adults for more than 80 years.  In this special exhibition, young children will enter the larger than life world of Curious George for a fun, and interactive math, science and engineering based adventure.

The Curious George exhibit inspires young children’s natural curiosity as they explore early science, math and engineering concepts through hands-on interactive play. The immersive exhibit environment takes place in the neighborhood where Curious George lives with his friend, The Man with the Yellow Hat.  Guests will recognize familiar characters and places featured in the stories and the animated series as they navigate through a park, a sidewalk produce stand, construction site, mini golf course, farm and more.

In Run! Jump! Fly!, guests will rediscover the fun of being physically active in a noncompetitive environment.  Families explore activities such as kung fu, surfing, snowboarding, yoga and climbing. Featuring the theme of action adventures popular in children’s books and movies, the exhibition invites guests to jump into “Action Star Training” – play activities that build strength, coordination, balance and endurance.

Both exhibitions run now through Sunday, January 8, 2023 and are included with the price of general admission.  For more information, visit
