Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum at Springfield Museums!

Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum comes to Springfield Museums!
May 25, 2024–September 1, 2024
Location: Lyman and Merrie Wood Museum of Springfield History

Who’s that kid who can travel through time? It’s you! This exhibit brings to life the acclaimed PBS KIDS® TV series, Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum, which follows kid adventurers Xavier Riddle, his little sister Yadina, and best friend Brad as they tackle everyday problems by doing something extraordinary: traveling back in time to learn from real-life inspirational figures when they were kids.

Follow Xavier and his friends as you sneak through a hidden passage in the Dinosaur Diorama and slide down a slide to enter the Secret Museum! Unlock your next time-traveling destination with the help of Hologram power.

Meet paleontologist Mary Anning and uncover dinosaur bones, dig for fossils and assemble your own dinosaur skeleton. Examine x-rays and conduct an experiment with lab equipment in Marie Curie’s chemist lab. Explore a Secret Garden with botanist George Washington Carver to sketch beautiful plant life and plant your own seeds.

In the Hall of Heroes, don a red cape like Xavier’s friend Brad, make a self-portrait, and learn how you can be a hero today. In the Secret Museum, go on a scavenger hunt to find special artifacts and “easter eggs”. Meet heroes like Alexander Graham Bell, Theodore Roosevelt, Sacagawea and more as you learn how they changed history!

Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum: The Exhibit is a nationally traveling exhibit created by The Magic House, St. Louis Children’s Museum in collaboration with 9 Story Media Group, Inc.
