Disney Junior is bringing its popular “Doc McStuffins” storytelling to communities in a first-ever touring museum exhibit based on the Peabody Award-winning television series. “Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit” opens at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis on SATURDAY, AUGUST 6, and will travel to other museums around the country in 2017. The exhibit is designed to model “care and compassion” for kids age 2-7 in immersive activities that reinforce the importance of health and well-being.
The bilingual (English/Spanish) interactive exhibit will transport kids and families into Doc’s iconic backyard clinic and the McStuffins Toy Hospital. There, young visitors go on a “feel better adventure” as they become “doctors in training,” don a white coat and toy stethoscope, “scrub in” (learning the importance of washing hands to avoid germs), report to an “operating room” where they can fix seams on a toy bear, assist in an “operation” on a toy dragon robot, and use Doc’s tools including a toy otoscope, stethoscope, thermometer and blood pressure cuff to give a checkup to their own toys.
The exhibit is sponsored by Riley Children’s Health at Indiana University Health, home to one of the nation’s leading children’s hospitals. The exhibit provides an opportunity for children to become comfortable in a healthcare setting.
