Kid-Favorite Parts of the Exhibit
Don’t miss the superpowered phone booth where your little one can receive a call from Zip, Zap, and Zoom. Also, make sure you drive the Pigeon Mobile—you’ll experience the sounds and smells of NYC while cruising around.
What to Know Before You Go
Did you know your child’s brain grows the fastest from birth through age 5!? You can pick up tips like this at every installation by choosing a card from the Zoom, Zip, or Zap mission. You can also find useful tips about the brain on VROOM. (Check out this app before you go to get a sense of the exhibit’s mission). It can also help you have a conversation with your child, so she knows what to expect when you visit. Finally, it’s best to wear socks and comfortable clothing because there are so many opportunities to climb structures and explore.
