Wild Kratts fans will have even more to go wild about when the first dedicated touring museum exhibits, based on the top-rated PBS KIDS series, hits the road in January 2019.
Kratt Brothers Company and Minnesota Children’s Museum are joining forces to launch two traveling Wild Kratts exhibits that will reach markets across North America. The new initiatives include Wild Kratts: Creature Power!, and Wild Kratts: Ocean Adventure. The interactive exhibits will allow kids to immerse themselves in the world of Wild Kratts and creature adventure using Wild Kratts technology and the powers of science and collaboration to help solve problems and protect animals.
“The new Wild Kratts traveling exhibits capture the spirit and sense of adventure that kids love about the show,” said Chris Kratt, creator, producer and co-star of the series and co-founder of Kratt Brothers Company. “We’re excited to team up with Minnesota Children’s Museum to bring hands-on fun and learning to fans in towns and cities from coast-to-coast.”
“We’re thrilled at the opportunity to help families experience the adventurous world of Wild Kratts,” said Dianne Krizan, president of Minnesota Children’s Museum. “The exhibit will use the power of play to give children opportunities to develop critical thinking, collaboration, confidence, and more.”
Due to strong demand following the exhibit launch announcement, the program quickly doubled in size with three years of bookings confirmed by venues and the second exhibit added. Wild Kratts: Creature Power!, a 2,500-sq.-ft. interactive exhibition, debuts in January 2019 at Minnesota Children’s Museum in St. Paul and Wild Kratts: Ocean Adventure, a 1,500-sq.-ft. exhibit, launches in February 2019 at the Museum of Science in Boston. Among the experiential opportunities presented in the exhibits are exploring the animal world – being miniaturized, hunting for lunch like a lobster, swinging across the canopy of the tropical rainforest and much more!
Wild Kratts-licensed products will be available for purchase in museum gift shops at every venue.
In addition to the museum tours, the all-new Wild Kratts LIVE 2.0, Activate Creature Power! touring stage show kicks off its 2018/2019 run in September, at the Hult Center for the Performing Arts in Eugene, OR.
