Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit
June 8 - September 8
Doctor for a Day
Children can heal the wounded and test out their doctoring skills at “Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit” at Children’s Museum of Atlanta. Based on the popular animated series, the exhibit teaches lessons in empathy and critical thinking while encouraging creativity. The large interactive exhibit features a Pet Rescue and Toy Hospital, complete with an emergency room, wash station, operating room and nursery with numerous cradles. Though the exhibit may be most appropriate for children ages 2-5, older children will still enjoy roleplaying in the hospital, which includes a reception area with automated telephones and an operating table that allows children to “operate” on Stuffy the Dragon. A collection of white coats, sparkly stethoscopes and blood pressure cuffs invite children to participate in dramatic play. Any child who has paid a visit to the doctor or emergency room will be happy to be on the other side of the table. As a mother of two older boys who love superheroes, I was excited to see my boys still eager to interact with the exhibit.
