Based on Nickelodeon’s top-rated animated preschool series PAW Patrol—which is produced by Spin Master Entertainment— the new exhibit opens February 23, 2019, and will give families and children the opportunity to travel alongside Marshall, Chase, Skye, Rocky, Rubble, Everest, Zuma, and Tracker as the PAW Patrol overcomes obstacles to helps others.
In different exhibit areas including Adventure Bay, Jake’s Mountain, and the jungle, youngsters will team up to overcome challenges, take heroic action, and help others. During the ruff, ruff rescues, visitors will participate in pretend play and hands-on interactives that encourage self-confidence, critical thinking and problem-solving.
Similar to Nickelodeon’s previous successful partnerships with The Children’s Museum, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™: Secrets of the Sewer, and Dora and Diego – Let’s Explore!, the PAW Patrol exhibit will travel to other children’s museums and venues across North America for five years following the Indianapolis debut.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Nickelodeon for a third exhibit,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum. “It is exciting to be the first museum to bring the rescue team of pups to Central Indiana followed by a national tour so they can continue to set a strong example of the importance of nurturing friendships and caring for our community and the world around us.”
