Opening October 18, the Adventures of MR. POTATO HEAD is an exciting hands-on traveling exhibit created by the Betty Brinn Children's Museum in collaboration with HASBRO®, and is featured in the Virginia Aquarium’s Changing Exhibit gallery through May 10, 2015. The exhibit is free with paid Aquarium admission or membership.
The exhibit features MR. POTATO HEAD, the much-loved silly character, who becomes an astronaut, explorer, scientist, and undersea adventurer with a change of his “parts.” MR. POTATO HEAD’s knack for wacky escapades and familiar personality engages children and adults in adventures that are friendly, yet exotic, while the comic appeal of the character charms adults and encourages them to play along. While having fun, children develop academic skills for young children, focusing on literacy, problem solving, mathematics, science and social studies.
