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 2-6 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.
*Exhibit is included in general admission.
