Visuals in the exhibit include:

  • Pirate Ship – join the Pirate Piggies crew and dress like a pirate to pretend-play along sailing the ship, raise and lower the flag, look through the telescopes to spot the treasure chest, and divvy up the coins into the banks to help share the treasure.
  • Animal Rescue Center – diagnose an animal’s problem from the Scanner bed, bandage and apply cold packs at the First-Aid Station, and bathe stuffed animals at the Care Station.
  • Rainforest Maze – explore a maze 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.
  • Tico’s Tree – help Tico pick nuts from the tree for a family picnic and play along with Swiper to swipe the nuts.
  • Isa’s Flowery Garden – tour Isa’s Garden to play with flowers, interact with bird, butterfly and insect puppes, and pretend-fly with toddler-sized bird and butterfly wings.
  • The Purple Planet – enter a Purple Planet home to climb and slide.
  • Rocket Ship – preschoolers can put on a spacesuit, pilot the ship, and test their memory with images of colorful planets.
  • Constellations – help identify the patterns made out of stars by inserting star shapes to light-up a constellation.
