This Highly Interactive Experience Brings Early Childhood Education to Life

Columbus, Ohio (July 25, 2022) – The Center of Science and Industry (COSI), voted the “#1 Science Museum in the Country,” by USA Today’s 10Best, announced today that “Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit” will land at COSI October 1 and will run through January 3.

This early childhood education exhibit is based on Disney Junior’s Peabody Award-winning television series “Doc McStuffins.” It’s produced in conjunction with The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis with support from Riley Children’s at Indiana University Health, and has been wildly popular with preschool-age kids as it has toured museums across the United States for more than five years. The animated Disney Junior series is celebrating its 10th anniversary throughout 2022.

The interactive English and Spanish bilingual experience transports kids and families from Doc’s backyard clinic to the McStuffins Toy Hospital. There, families are invited to help Doc perform check-ups and diagnose toy patients while learning about healthy habits, compassion and nurturing care.

“The Doc McStuffins exhibit provides us a unique opportunity to do two fundamental things; 1. Celebrate the wonderful diversity in science and shine a light on veterinary medicine, and 2. Encourage the importance of taking care of ourselves as well as others,” said Dr. Frederic Bertley, president & CEO, COSI. “Not only is this exhibit going to be a blast for young learners, it is a great space where families can have important conversations about health and learn more about science and medicine in a hands-on, imaginative way.”

Disney character live appearances are not part of the exhibit. For more information, please visit COSI.org/DocMcStuffins.
