Exhibits

 

The Adventures of MR. POTATO HEAD

MR. POTATO HEAD needs you to join his tater team for some fun and educational expeditions at EdVenture Children’s Museum. The popular exhibit features MR. POTATO HEAD, the much-loved silly character, who becomes an astronaut, explorer, scientist and undersea adventurer with a change of his “parts.” MR. POTATO HEAD has a knack for wacky escapades and his familiar personality engages children and adults in amazing adventures into outer space, on a jungle safari, on an archaeological dig and under the sea. Meet incredible creatures as you explore the jungle safari, help repair the S.P.U.D. space station, search for life on the planet Neptato, explore the ocean with Jacques Coustato, and join an archaeological dig to solve the secrets of King Tato’s lost vegetable kingdom. You’ll have a spudtacular time!
