Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?
Now through September 9, 2007
If you love watching Sesame Street on television, imagine stepping right onto 123 Sesame Street. Children will get to experience what it’s like to be a part of the show! They’ll learn all about their ABCs and 123s as they skip through the familiar places, like Gina’s Day Care Center, Oscar’s Newsstand, and Bird Air Travel Agency. In the Hands-on Minds-on Playground, they can turn a crank to spin letters and discover new words, play with letters in the A-Z cubbyholes, count animals and objects hidden in the counting tree, and experiment with notes and scales on a set of steel drums. Kids can watch themselves on the screen as they interact with images of their favorite characters: count along with The Count, sing the alphabet with Elmo, and count in Spanish with Rosita. They can even put on their own puppet show! Adults will enjoy taking a trip down memory lane. As they make their way through the exhibit, visitors will learn about our nation’s history and how it furthered the development of Sesame Street from its beginning to the present.
