OPENS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15
A grand opening takes place on Saturday, October 15, 2011 for a BIG RED DOG named CLIFFORD in the Glazer Children’s Museum’s new Traveling Exhibit Hall! Board the Birdwell Island ferry and journey to the world of Clifford™, America’s beloved big red dog with a big heart to match. See Emily Elizabeth™ and many of the residents of Birdwell Island.
Inspired by Scholastic Entertainment’s top-rated TV show Clifford The Big Red Dog® on PBS KIDS®, the exhibit offers numerous immersive ‘paws-on’ adventures that reinforce ‘Clifford’s Big Ideas’ ten simple tangible life lessons designed to help young children navigate their world: Share, Play Fair, Have Respect, Work Together, Be Responsible, Be Truthful, Be Kind, Believe in Yourself, Be a Good Friend and Help Others. Adventures with Clifford The Big Red Dog will be here through December 31.
Kids can visit a colossal nine-foot tall Clifford with a tail to slide down, just like Emily Elizabeth does on the television show. Children can help fill Clifford’s big dog bowl with bones using a conveyor belt and find ‘bone’-ifide treasures at T-Bone’s Beach. Browse the Norman Bridwell Art Retrospective and see 40 years (that’s 280 dog-years) of artwork and stories by the creator and award-winning author of Clifford The Big Red Dog.
Check back regularly for special weekly events with Clifford!
