Wallace & Gromit™ and Shaun the Sheep™: Shear Genius!

Now Open Through Aug. 28

Step into the worlds of Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep in this all-new exhibit making its world premiere at Minnesota Children’s Museum this summer.

Visit 62 West Wallaby Street and Mossy Bottom Farm as you explore the contraptions, antics and escapades of your favorite Aardman characters. Blast off in Wallace’s rocket, test out some wild contraptions with Gromit, climb around the barn with Shaun and more!

Designed for children ages 3 through 9, Wallace & Gromit™ and Shaun the Sheep™: Shear Genius! builds on problem-solving themes found throughout both shows. Components and activities throughout the exhibit encourage children to playfully solve and talk about problems in fun, engaging ways.
