Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™ Share Secrets of the Sewer, Ninja Tactics and Teamwork at Reading Public Museum
READING, PA – After three decades of battling evil and exemplifying teamwork, the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) will appear in a museum exhibit for children and families to enjoy at the Reading Public Museum. The four funny “heroes in a half–shell” will share life lessons and team-building skills with their crime-fighting tactics in Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secrets of the Sewer.
Families will be transported to the underground home of the crime-fighting heroes to see what really happens in their secret hideaway. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brothers Leonardo (the tactical, courageous leader in blue), Michelangelo (the free-spirited jokester in orange), Raphael (the aggressive tough guy in red), and Donatello (the scientist and technological genius in purple) invite families to their New York City sewer lair to train together and learn about the Turtles’ comedic, skillful strategies.
“Every summer we aim to provide the community with a hands-on, fun, educational exhibit. We are excited to partner with Customers Bank to host TMNT for families to come and explore the sewers of New York, working together to overcome obstacles while learning and having fun along the way,” noted John Graydon Smith, Director and CEO of The Museum.
The Turtles are known and respected for their teamwork. As the TMNT’s sensei and adoptive father Splinter often tells them, “Together there is nothing you cannot accomplish.” Through team-building challenges, collaborative games and mind-teasing puzzles, families and friends will learn skills to help them successfully work together. Here are a few examples:
- Build a “bridge” together and think creatively as a team to overcome challenges.
- Assemble two electrical circuit puzzles by taking one apart to build another.
- Plan ahead and use patience to navigate the rope maze.
- Practice ninja speed and slicing skills while playing a dexterity-based computer game.
- Shred up and practice your balance on skateboards.
- Create a sewer pipe together and see where it goes.
The Turtles took the comic book world by storm in 1984—and since then Donnie, Raph, Leo and Mikey have brought Turtle Power to cartoons, movies, video games and toys! Children and families across the nation will have the opportunity to explore Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secrets of the Sewer as it travels to children’s museums and science centers coast to coast.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens Saturday, May 13 and will run through Labor Day, September 4, 2017. The exhibition is sponsored locally by Customers Bank. The exhibit was produced by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Nickelodeon.
