The Dog Days of September are Headed Our Way

The dog days of summer might be top of mind right now, but we’re looking ahead to the dog days of September when Adventures with Clifford the Big Red Dog™ comes to Discovery Center! We can’t wait to welcome our favorite childhood canine companion to the DC for a four-month visit upstairs. Inspired by the Norman Bridwell books and inspired by the

 PBS tv series of the same name, Adventures with Clifford the Big Red Dog™ is a hands-on exploration of all your favorite Clifford locales and friends. The exhibit is composed of 10 kiosks which all explore a central theme of good citizenship, called Clifford’s Big Ideas. The exhibit opens with a short ferry ride to Birdwell Island where visitors can explore Samuel’s Fish & Chips Shack, Emily Elizabeth’s Backyard Theater, Cleo’s Backyard, the Birdwell Island Post Office and more.  

We’ve been anticipating the arrival of this exhibit for over a year and cannot wait for it to be here. We’re celebrating opening day in style with a Breakfast with Clifford. Tickets will officially go on sale August 1, so be sure to tune in to our social media accounts and the website for more information.
