Sid the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit Comes the River Museum

Sid the Science Kid visits the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium with Sid the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit!
Beginning Dec. 7, 2019, kids can join Sid the Science Kid on an amazing, scientific adventure when Sid the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit! opens at the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium.

This exciting, new traveling exhibit brings the award-winning PBS KIDS TV series Sid the Science Kid to life. For the first time ever, kids will be able to step into Sid’s world and become “science kids” themselves as they discover and investigate everyday science questions around Sid’s home, at school in the Super Fab Lab and on the playground. Through fun, hands-on activities, kids will use scientific tools and thinking to learn about simple machines, the laws of motion, magnetism, air power and the five senses. It’s sure to be a super-duper-ooper-schmooper good time!

Sid the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit! will be at the River Museum Dec. 7, 2019, through April 26, 2020, and is included with general admission. Created by The Magic House, St. Louis Children’s Museum in collaboration with The Jim Henson Company, the exhibit is generously made possible by The Boeing Company, the Employees Community Fund of Boeing St. Louis, Sally and Bill Canfield, the Crawford Taylor Foundation, Judy and Jerry Kent, and Sigma-Aldrich. Local sponsorship is provided by the Grand Harbor Resort & Waterpark, KCRG-TV9, and Townsquare Media/Y105.

Sid was created by the same company that created Once Upon a Time: Exploring the World of Fairy Tales, which ended a highly successful run at the River Museum in September.
“As we did with Once Upon a Time, we’ll be offering monthly programming and opportunities to meet Sid himself,” said Wendy Scardino, Director of Marketing & Communications. “These programs are included with general admission and offer additional hands-on activities and fun for children 10 and under.”
Sid will begin its run during the heart of the River Museum’s annual membership promotion season. During Nov. and Dec. 2019, the River Museum will be offering 25% off individual, dual, family and grandparent memberships and membership gift certificates. Membership includes free daily admission to the River Museum for a full year as well as a number of benefits that can be found at For more information on Sid the Science Kid: The Super-Duper Exhibit! and monthly programming, visit
