Grown-up Tip: Today, focus your play on acting out the different medical career roles in our health center exhibit space. This exhibit space is great to use with young children prior to going to a real doctor or dentist appointment since acting out the roles of patient and dentist/doctor can help to alleviate the anxiety that can occur for young children when attending these appointments.

RSVP: Not required

Fee: Activities are included with museum admission
