Barbie: You Can Be Anything

  • Barbie Exhibit

Opening May 2020

From career dolls to real-world role models, Barbie has been inspiring girls since 1959—and she isn't done yet! The Children's Museum is proud to partner with Mattel to celebrate 60 years of Barbie with a new exhibit opening in May of 2020. The exhibit will showcase the iconic Barbie doll and encourage the kind of imaginative play that teaches us that no matter our gender, ethnicity, or background, we can all make the world a better place by doing work that excites us, challenges us, and brings us fulfillment.

  • View various Barbie dolls through history and the story behind how Ruth Handler created the iconic Doll
  • Explore 15 different careers and learn about the more than 200 careers Barbie has had over the years
  • Learn from powerful women throughout history who have broken down career barriers for women
