Three Floors of Fun

Our exhibits spark children’s learning through play.
The experiences are open-ended, allowing children to explore, create and pursue their own interests.
Children build their brains and bodies during a visit to Minnesota Children’s Museum.

Experience the first-ever museum exhibit based on Disney Junior’s Peabody Award-winning television series Doc McStuffins!

Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit, the highly interactive English and Spanish bilingual experience, will transport kids and families from Doc’s backyard clinic to the McStuffins Toy Hospital. There, families are invited to help Doc perform check-ups and diagnose toy patients while learning about healthy habits, compassion and nurturing care.

Through imaginative play and hands-on activities, children learn important life lessons about health and wellness. Feed and rock a baby in the Nursery, take care of patients in the Emergency and Operating Rooms, give a pet an exam in the Pet Vet and so much more.

Disney Junior’s Peabody Award-winning “Doc McStuffins” is an imaginative animated series about a 6-year-old girl who communicates with and heals stuffed animals and broken toys out of her backyard playhouse clinic and in the magical McStuffins Toy Hospital. Created and executive-produced by Humanitas Prize and Emmy Award-winning Chris Nee, the series has been lauded globally for its modeling of good health practices and imparting to young viewers the importance of taking care of oneself and others.

Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit is produced by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and presented by Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health. Disney character live appearances are not part of the exhibit. © Disney
