Dora and Diego—Let’s Explore! will run through January 8, 2017. Be sure to bring your little explorer to play along with Dora, Diego, and their friends so they too can say “We did it!”

Favorite friends and places from episodes of Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Go! are incorporated into the exhibit including: 

Visit the Purple Planet with Dora and Boots! A Purple Planet home invites young visitors to climb inside and slide down on the surface of the Purple Planet.
Dora’s outerspace friends want to go back to the Purple Planet and need help getting there. Aboard the Rocket Ship, preschoolers are invited to put on a spacesuit, pilot the ship, and test their memory with images of colorful planets as they help Dora and Boots take their friends from outerspace home.
On the way to the Purple Planet, Dora and Boots encounter some interesting star groupings. Children and their families are invited to help identify the patterns made out of stars by inserting star shapes to light up a constellation.
Dora’s friend Isa the Iguana demonstrates how to take care of flowers, plants, and animals. Preschool visitors can tour Isa’s Garden to pick flowers, interact with bird, butterfly, and insect puppets, and pretend-fly with toddler-sized bird and butterfly wings. Even the littlest visitors will enjoy smelling the flowery scents and picking soft-fabric posies.
Dora is a good friend to Tico the Squirrel and young visitors are invited to be a good friend to Tico too. Tico needs help picking nuts from the tree for a family picnic. Children can play along with Swiper to swipe the nuts and watch as they shoot up and over to fill Tico’s basket. Tico’s car is in need of fuel! Visitors can help Tico fill up his car with nuts so he can begin his journey.
In the Pirate Ship, preschoolers can join the Pirate Piggies crew and dress like a pirate to pretend-play by sailing the ship and divvying up the treasure. Visitors can raise and lower the Pirate Piggies’ flag, look through the telescopes to spot the treasure chest, and then divvy up the coins into the Pirate Piggies’ banks and help them share the treasure.
Young children practice caring and helping rainforest animals in Diego’s Animal Rescue Center. Preschoolers can be an animal rescuer like Diego as they diagnose and address an animal’s problem from the “Scanner” bed, bandage at the “First-Aid Station,” and bathe stuffed animals at the “Care Station.”
Preschoolers will explore a rainforest to locate rainforest animals. Active play is encouraged as children swing across the Bobo Brothers’ monkey bars, crawl through a fallen tree, climb across Jaguar Mountain, and jump or hop across the River Rocks.
