The Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) will be unveiling their newest exhibition May 20th, inspired by the popular characters from the award-winning Nickelodeon series’. Although CMOM has partnered with Nickelodeon before, this new exhibit prominently features the newest addition to the Dora the Explorer family- her cousin Diego!
With a strong focus on animals and habitats kids learn crucial developmental skills while they help Diego save threatened species. A sure fire hit for the young animal lover, Diego’s Animal Rescue Center has been recreated to help kids identify X-Rays, listen to the different heart beats of a variety of animals and match footprints to different species.
After testing their skills at animal rescue, the kids move on to help plan a fiesta for Dora and all their favorite friends, like Boots, Backpack and Swipe. Here the little ones get to listen to music, practice their shapes and learn crucial home skills. The exhibit is sure to keep kids on their toes and having fun while learning!
“CMOM is thrilled to be the home of the country’s only museum exhibition inspired by Dora and Diego, two characters who motivate children every day to learn more about the world around them,” said Andrew Ackerman, Director, Children’s Museum of Manhattan.
“This exhibition presents a wonderful opportunity for us to expand the lessons Diego and Dora teach, like problem solving skills, math, language and Latino culture, beyond the television screen and into real life,” said Brown Johnson, President, Animation, Nickelodeon and MTVN Kids and Family Group.
The “Adventures with Dora and Diego” exhibition opens Tuesday, May 20, 2008 at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan at 212 West 83rd Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam.
