Coming Attraction: Curious George Swings Into Discovery Cube Los Angeles

The "Curious George" exhibit is coming to Discovery Cube LA on Sept. 19.

Everyone's favorite little monkey will be swinging into L.A., this time at Discovery Cube Los Angeles.

"Curious George" the exhibit, which kicks off September 19 and runs through January 3, invites kids and their families to explore the neighborhood belonging to that ornery monkey (created in books by Margret and H.A. Rey) and his friend The Man With the Yellow Hat.

With fun, interactive displays including a sidewalk produce stand and a (replica) apartment building, kids can use their hands as well as their brains while diving into math-, science- and engineering-based adventures.

Kids can sort vegetables at the sidewalk produce stand.

Here are a few features that will be in George's neighborhood, according to Discovery Cube LA:

Apartment Building
Experiment with wheels and pulleys to move George from window to window. Also, learn the science behind color, light, and shadow as you climb in and out of the building.
Sidewalk Produce Stand
Play the part of customer or salesperson to explore shapes, sorting, weighing, and counting with fruits and vegetables!
Construction Site
Climb into the construction trailer to design a building! Here you can use a bounty of building materials, and machines, to construct different structures.
Space Rocket
Climb into the rocket George took on his famous space adventure! Here you can find George in his space suit and take pictures from the control station!
Museum Within the Museum 
At the museum, learn more about Curious George. Find out how the authors saved the manuscript during World War II, and take a look at the history of this historic little monkey.
