Wild Kratts: Creature Power is open at the Springfield Museums.

"Wild Kratts: Creature Power!" opens Saturday, May 29, at the Springfield Science Museum. Based on the popular PBS KIDS series, this immersive, interactive exhibit allows kids and families to explore four animal habitats and the creatures within them, building STEM skills as they play.

Geared for children ages 3 to 9, the exhibit invites kids and families to explore animal habitats from around the globe, discover incredible creature powers, and go on a mission to foil the villains’ nefarious plans. All the while, visitors will build science, technology, engineering, and math skills. 

“This exhibit will get kids moving and thinking while they explore important concepts in science and the natural world,” said Chris Kratt, executive producer of Wild Kratts and co-founder of The Kratt Brothers Company.

Visitors will explore four animal habitats including:

· Tropical Rainforest

· The Antarctic

· Australian Outback Desert

· Your Neighborhood

Kids and families will get the chance to learn about and try out various Creature Powers such as:

· Sneaking through the forest using the stealth of a jaguar

· Swinging through the trees like a spider monkey

· Testing their hops against a kangaroo

“At the Science Museum, we are committed to helping all visitors expand their understanding of science while having fun,” said Mike Kerr, who leads the Science Museum. “Wild Kratts is all about building skills while playing.”
