Now in it’s tenth year of touring North American museums, Sesame Street Presents: The Body heads to the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey!

The exhibit has a total of 17 activities, many of them hands-on experiences, spread out over three zones:

— “Your Insides” helps kids learn about the heart, lungs, and other organs with activities like Count’s Organ Organ, Digestion with Oscar and Oscar’s Sneeze Machine;
— The “Staying Healthy” zone teaches kids what they need to do every day to lead a healthy lifestyle. This zone features Sesame Street staples like Mr. Hooper’s Store, Rosita’s Locomotion, Baby Bear’s Mini Mart and Rub-A-Dub Tub.
