There are only a few days left to fix the drip on the sink, decorate Wendy’s caravan, help Farmer Pickles bring water to Sunflower Valley and other can-do activities before the beloved Bob the Builder™ - Project: Build It! exhibit at the Museum of Nature & Science closes Sunday (January 8). Based on the hit TV show, Bob the Builder is an interactive exhibit that fosters creativity and coordination through open-ended, discovery-based games and activities.

Dressed in full costume, “Bob” will be on site to bid farewell and pose for snapshots with young fans on Sunday (January 8) from 1 – 3 p.m. in the MNS Nature Building (3535 Grand Ave. in Fair Park).

Bob the Builder provides an immersive environment that surrounds students with an array of objects, tools, materials, media, sounds and colors. The charming exhibit builds curiosity, socialization and motor skills for preschoolers and young children, while teaching about teamwork, construction and conservation. Children can build sleep stalls for Bob’s machine friends, climb aboard kid-sized equipment, communicate with their favorite characters via Talkie-Talkie, work on plumbing fixtures, explore an interactive water pump station and more.

Locally sponsored by Bank of America, Bob the Builder is free for members and included with the cost of general admission for non-members. Regular general exhibit admission is $10 for adults 18-61; $9 for seniors 62+ and students 12-17; $7 for children 2-11; children under 2 are free; MNS members of all ages are admitted for free. Tickets are available online or at any MNS box office during regular museum hours (Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday noon – 5 p.m.).
