Discovery Science Center: Dora & Diego Let’s Explore Exhibit

last saturday, we headed down to our favorite museum….The Discovery Science Center where my boys favorite Star Wars exhibit is. this time for the grand opening of the new Dora & Diego Let’s Explore exhibit. and now baby has a favorite exhibit. it’s colorful, fun & interactive….just perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.

Dora and Diego—Let’s Explore! takes visitors on an active adventure in the enchanting world of Dora the Explorer, her animal-rescuing cousin Diego, and their friends. explore Isa’s Flowery Garden, help Tico gather nuts, join the Pirate Piggies crew to uncover pirate treasure, and help baby animals in the Rainforest Maze. plus there are plenty of dress up clothes to get into character.

here’s baby exploring Diego’s jungle….where he also got to climb the kid-friendly rock wall and monkey bars!
his favorite by far was helping Tico gather his nuts. fill up a basket and then send the nuts back up the shoot.
Isa’s Flowery Garden had lots of fun garden toys. and here he is fixing a flat in Tico’s car.
and we helped the Pirate Piggies count their treasure.
we had sooooo much fun!
the new Dora & Diego Let’s Explore exhibit is just one of the spectacular exhibits the museum has to offer.  while you’re there, you can also check out Eco Challenge, Dino Quest, Science of Hockey, Boeing Rocket Lab,  Star Wars and more! don’t miss it!
