Miami Children’s Museum (MCM) will bring the world of construction to life as it opens its newest exhibit, Seth’s Construction Zone on Sunday, June 24th at 10:00 AM. This innovative and interactive exhibit will feature different zones and building stations that incorporate elements of a construction site to encourage problem solving skills, logical thinking, communication and coordination, and teamwork. Seth’s Construction Zone is made possible through the generous support of the Robert & Michelle Diener Foundation.

Visitors will transform into construction workers as they enter this 490 square foot space through a unique tunnel with flashing lights and work site signs. Children and their families will be able to participate in a number of construction related activities, complete with costumes and props to help set the tone.

Highlights of the exhibit include Detour Zone which encourages problem solving, Kids at Work Zone, a soft play area designed specifically for younger visitors, Pallet of Bricks, a fun and challenging puzzle, and two different building stations. Children can even learn how a bull dozer works and can use their own conveyor belt and wheel barrels.

The opening of Seth’s Construction Zone will be kicked off with special programming, Think It, Build It! Day, on Sunday, June 24th from 12:00 – 4:00 PM. Museum educators will lead activities that cover every aspect of building, from the development of projects to clean up!
