Clifford the Big Red Dog at Cincinnati Museum Center

Whoever said learning wasn't fun has yet to visit the new Adventures with Clifford the Big Red Dog Exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum Center. Children won't even realize they are learning as they wander through nine interactive playgrounds, each themed around one of "Clifford's Big Ideas."

Clifford's big ideas are designed to teach children 10 simple life lessons ranging from sharing to respsonsibility. "It's all educationally based," said Dougless McDonald, president and CEO of the Cincinnati Museum Center. "As children enjoy themselves in the exhibit, they will be learning topics important for child development."

So what brought this educational exhibit to the tristate area? Well, the Duke Energy Children's Museum is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its move to the Cincinnati Museum Center. While the celebration today was only open to musuem members, the Adventures with Clifford the Big Red Dog Exhibit opens to the public Oct. 4 and is scheduled to run through Jan. 11.
