Magic House Adds 'Life's Little Lessons' Exhibits
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), February 19, 2017 - The City of Kirkwood and The Magic House, St. Louis Children's Museum have announced their partnership in creating Safety Town, an interactive exhibit designed to educate the region's youngest residents about safety.

The idea for this new exhibit began with Kirkwood's Fire Chief, Chief Silvernail, who wanted to find an engaging way to educate children about the importance of safety. Silvernail approached The Magic House with an idea to create Safety Town together.

"The City of Kirkwood is extremely excited to partner with one of the country's premiere children's museums to deliver such essential safety messages to the children of our community. This partnership between the City of Kirkwood and The Magic House is an ideal collaboration to effectively teach safety in a fun learning environment" said Chief Silvernail. "The City of Kirkwood is extremely fortunate to have this venue and this opportunity."

Designed for children ages 3 through 10, Safety Town will feature a child-sized neighborhood including a fire station, police station, electric company, farmers' market, train station, park and house. Visitors can hop on bikes to travel through the city, learning important traffic, electric and water safety skills along the way.

From navigating a railroad crossing to practicing a fire drill, Safety Town will provide age-appropriate opportunities to reinforce how children can protect themselves at home, outdoors and on the road. Safety Town will also feature a bike helmet-fitting station and scheduled visits from community helpers, including fire fighters and police officers.

Safety Town will open seasonally at The Magic House each April and October beginning in Fall 2017 through 2021. The exhibit will also travel to fairs, festivals and other community venues around the St. Louis region.

The Magic House has also added "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: A Grr-ific Exhibit" through May 7, 2017. This new exhibit brings to life the themes presented in the award-winning PBS Kids television series created by The Fred Rogers Company that follows the adventures of 4-year-old Daniel Tiger and his friends.

In "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: A Grr-ific Exhibit" children enter the world of Daniel Tiger and friends to explore the Neighborhood. Through immersive experiences, visitors collaborate to solve problems, use their imaginations to transform their surroundings and play along with Daniel's singable strategies as they learn life's little lessons.

Visitors can walk the paths and hear the sounds of Daniel's world as they encounter the meaning of empathy, gratitude, sharing and diversity in an environment of creative and interactive play. Through music, kids can also sing along with Daniel, work together to solve problems and even experience the contagious nature of kindness.
