First-Ever Museum Exhibit Based on Disney’s Peabody Award-Winning Series
Disney Junior brings its popular “Doc McStuffins” storytelling to communities in the first-ever touring museum exhibit based on the Peabody Award-winning television series. The exhibit, in partnership with The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, is designed to model “care and compassion” for kids age 2-7 in immersive activities that reinforce the importance of health and well-being. Presented by Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health and sponsored locally by the Stanbridge University School of Nursing, “Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit” at Discovery Cube allows young “doctors-in- training” to visit the McStuffins Toy Hospital where they can perform check-ups and diagnose toy patients while learning about healthy habits, compassion and nurturing care.
Exhibit activities include:
- Giving toy patients check-ups in the Emergency Room.
- Performing “operations” on toys that need bigger fixes in the Operating Room.
- Diagnosing pet toys with X-ray scanning machines in the Pet Vet Clinic.
- Rocking baby dolls to sleep and helping them follow their bedtime routines in the Nursery.
Before caring for their toys, young visitors will learn how to “scrub in” and practice good hygiene. The exhibit helps children learn the importance of healthy living, well-being and nurturing our bodies, and provides an opportunity for children to become comfortable in a healthcare setting.
