The Children’s Museum of Wilmington Opens New Active Lifestyle Exhibit

DOWNTOWN WILMINGTON, NC – On Friday, July 19th, The Children’s Museum of Wilmington will open its new Kid Power exhibit, sponsored by Planet Fitness. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 9:30 a.m. and is open to the public. Regular admission pricing applies for the day. The exhibit will give children a fun way to expend energy while learning the importance of being active. Watch our interview with WWAY TV3 to learn more about Kid Power!

Housed in the former international diner area on the fourth floor of the Museum, Kid Power will have a variety of active components for children to learn about different muscles in their bodies and simultaneously burn energy. These activities include a long jump, vertical jump, balance beam, hand bike, stationary bike and area for aerobic fitness.

“We are beyond thrilled to partner with The Children’s Museum of Wilmington to bring health and fitness awareness to the next generation,” said Reid Wolfe, Planet Fitness Regional Manager. “Just like in our gyms, the Kid Power exhibit creates a beautiful environment where kids can have fun, go at their own pace, and do their own thing without ever having to worry about being judged. We are looking forward to all of the smiles the exhibit brings!”
