Teddy Bear Check-up

Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017 – Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017

09:00 AM – 01:00 PM


The holidays are here, and that means it’s time for Teddy Bear Check-Up!

Join us on Saturday, December 9th for breakfast and a visit by the jolly guy himself – Santa Claus!

Show your child that check-ups are fun. Bring your children and their favorite teddy bear for an annual check-up at The Health Museum where they can make sure teddy is healthy for the holidays with a proper physical examination and certificate of health. It’s a fun event for the whole family with information on healthy habits during the holidays,

Kids get hands-on experience checking their Teddy's health while learning proper oral hygiene, how to listen to the heart with a stethoscope, keeping Teddy fit with stretches and moderate exercise and administering a band-aid for the occasional boo-boo.

With their VIPs (Very Important Patients), kids will also enjoy a visit from Santa Claus who will be onsite for photos plus holiday and science themed activities and crafts.

Teddy Bear Check-up is included in regular admission price. Breakfast and photos with Santa are free to members.
