A brand new exhibit based on Disney’s hit TV show “The Lion Guard” will make its debut at the Miami Children’s Museum in January 2018.
The first-ever museum exhibit featuring the Disney Junior show will stay in Miami for six months and will then continue to other children’s museums nationwide through 2022.
“We are honored to be working with Disney on this unique exhibit for children and families that will encompass important learning areas such as social and self-development,” said Deborah Spiegelman, CEO/Executive Director for Miami Children’s Museum.
From the museum’s press release:
Spotlighting important learning areas such as social and self-development, problem solving, creative thinking and arts & culture, this one-of-a-kind exhibit will bring “The Lion Guard” story to life for young children and their families. Through hands-on activities and interactive and imaginative play, guests will be transported to the Pride Lands to discover the unique traits of each member of The Lion Guard team – Kion, the leader of the group and the fiercest in all of the Pride Lands; Bunga, a fearless honey badger and the Pride Lands’ bravest; Fuli, a confident cheetah and the fastest in the Pride Lands; Beshte, a friendly and good-spirited hippo and the strongest in the Pride Lands; and Ono, an intellectual egret who is keenest of sight – that allow them to work together to maintain balance in the Circle of Life.
“Helping kids learn to appreciate teamwork and recognize the attributes that contribute to being a strong leader is an important milestone in their development and we are delighted to be working with the Miami Children’s Museum on their exhibit featuring the characters and themes from our much loved Disney Junior series, ‘The Lion Guard.’ Giving families a chance to experience our stories beyond the screen is a vital part of what we do and an example of how we can work together in communities to make a lasting impact,” said Nancy Kanter, Executive Vice President, Content and Creative Strategy, Disney Channels Worldwide, and General Manager, Disney Junior Worldwide.
The museum already boasts several fun and interactive exhibits for children but a brand new exhibit in collaboration with Disney on its first stop is certainly cause for celebration and something to look forward to. With the opening of the nearby Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science right next to the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), South Florida families have several options in that area to experience and appreciate top-class museums.
