Special activities offered throughout the museum.

WEEBLES Coast to Coast, a traveling exhibit at Baylor University's Mayborn Museum Complex provides more than 70 hands-on activities that help children develop important academic skills and learn about U.S. geography, history and culture as they take a pretend trip across the United States.

In the exhibit, created in collaboration with Hasbro, Inc., visitors will travel to each of the 50 states to explore U.S. geography, history and culture. Exhibit activities feature favorite American travel, sports and leisure pastimes, music from across the nation, and fun and important information about well-known people, places and historical events. Children can pretend to go fishing in Minnesota, drive along the Pacific Coast Highway in California, join a pit crew in Indianapolis, Indiana, and so much more!

Visitors can plan their "trip" with a giant U.S. map and a touch-screen kiosk featuring the country's geographic regions, important state facts, national landmarks and popular tourist destinations. Murals of beautiful American landscapes provide the backdrop for engaging play areas that represent U.S. regions and create memorable stops at the seaside, mountains, forest and desert. A special reading area is dedicated to U.S. geography, history, travel, and the idea that "a book can take you anywhere!"
