CLEVELAND (September 26, 2022) – Great Lakes Science Center is doubling the fall fun for families with kids of all ages this October 22 when it opens a unique pair of hands-on special exhibitions, “Curious George: Let’s Get Curious” and “Run! Jump Fly! Adventures in Action,” powered by PNC Bank.
“We are excited to have both exhibitions bringing joy to neighbors across northeast Ohio in environments where parents and caregivers are most comfortable,” said Pat Pastore, PNC regional president for Cleveland. “PNC knows birth to age 5 is a critical time in a child’s development. Supporting ‘Curious George: Let’s Get Curious’ and ‘Run! Jump Fly! Adventures in Action’ offers children and caregivers an invaluable opportunity, whether it’s virtual or in person, to access programming and resources to help them succeed in school and in life.”
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.
Based on the familiar characters in H.A. and Margret Rey’s classic stories, 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 non-competitive 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.
Run! Jump! Fly! encourages guests to try out activities they may have never encountered and revisit familiar activities in new ways. Cultural spotlights and real-life stories of young people and families who are passionate about a particular activity will deepen guests’ motivation to get into action. As guests move through the exhibit and have fun with physical activity, they will get ideas for how they can become more active in their daily lives.
Both exhibitions run from Saturday, October 22 through Sunday, January 8 and are included with the price of general admission. For more information, visit
