The Doctor is in.

Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit opens this week and will be housed at the Family Museum in Bettendorf, Iowa through May 14.  The bilingual (English/Spanish) interactive exhibit, based on the Peabody Award-winning Disney Junior series “Doc McStuffins,” was produced by and previously housed at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, and will continue to travel to other museums around the country until 2019.

Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit is designed to model “care and compassion” for kids age 2-7 in immersive activities that reinforce the importance of health and well-being. Kids and families will be transported from Doc’s iconic backyard clinic to the McStuffins Toy Hospital. Young visitors will then go on a “feel better adventure” as they become “doctors in training,” don a white coat and toy stethoscope, “scrub in” (learning the importance of washing hands to avoid germs), report to an “operating room” where they can fix seams on a toy bear and assist in an “operation” on a toy dragon robot, and staff an “Emergency Room” where they can use Doc’s tools including a toy otoscope, stethoscope, thermometer and blood pressure cuff to give a check-up to hurt toys.

Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit is produced by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, nationally sponsored by Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University, and locally sponsored by the Regional Development Authority, Scott County Regional Authority, and the University of Iowa Community Credit Union. Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health is one of the nation’s leading children’s hospitals.
