Going, Going, Gone!

Three Baltimore museum exhibits are packing up this month and moving on to their next destination. Catch 'em before you miss out!

Bob the Builder - Project Build It!
Through January 17, 2011 at Port Discovery Children's Museum
From the Port Discovery web site: "Spend time in Sunflower Valley with Bob the Builder, Wendy and the rest of the Can-Do Crew. Children can practice their own fixing with kid-smart activities that build up their Can-Do attitudes and encourage them to be active. Families can also work together to install new parts to sinks in Bob the Builder's mobile home and in his building workshop, learn about water conservation, build the vehicle shelter, experiment with tools in Bob's building workshop and much more!" FREE with general museum admission.

Toothy Toys That Made Us Smile
Running Through January 30, 2011 at The National Museum of Dentistry in Baltimore
Catch a blast from your past while getting your kids more comfortable with the concept of the "dreaded" dentist's office! More than 50 childhood toys featuring teeth are on display ranging from the original wind-up Yakity Yak chatterteeth created in 1949 to Cabbage Patch dolls with teeth from the 1980s. The exhibit also features comic books, a playable Tooth Invaders video game from 1981, and a hands-on game corner where visitors can try their hand at classic dental themed games like Crocodile Dentist and Mr. Mouth. $7 for adults and $5 for students.

Odyssey's SHIPWRECK! Pirates & Treasure
Running Through January 31, 2011 at The Maryland Science Center
The interactive simulation stations and computer games in this exhibit will make your kids feel like they’re a part of a deep ocean shipwreck recovery team. Check out artifacts recovered from shipwreck sites and learn what life was really like for swashbuckling pirates on the high seas. Because this is a special exhibit, there is a fee over and above general Science Center admission.
