Where Every Family Matters

Get Ready to Move at New Discovery Center Exhibit

'Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action' opens Jan. 15 and runs through May 8, 2022.

The Discovery Center at Murfree Spring invites visitors to jump into an action-packed family adventure with its new featured exhibit, Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action™, which opens Saturday, Jan. 15.

The exhibit is included with admission and free for members. More information is available at explorethedc.org/run-jump-fly.

Run! Jump! Fly! encourages a physically active lifestyle by introducing kids and families to a variety of fun-filled activities such as kung fu, surfing, snowboarding, yoga and climbing. The primary goal of the exhibit is to get kids into action by playing and doing things they love to do.

   

Exhibit components include:

  • Surfing and Snowboarding (Balance)
  • Kung Fu Forest (Coordination)
  • Climbing Canyon (Strength)
  • Flycycle Sky (Endurance)
  • Yoga Station
  • Strength Center
  • Dance Club
  • Toddler Pyramid

Cultural spotlights and real-life stories of young people and families who are passionate about a particular activity aim to deepen visitors’ motivation about fitness. As visitors move through the exhibit and have fun with physical activity, they will get ideas for how they can become more active daily.

Throughout the exhibit, kids and accompanying adults stamp the activities they tried on Action Trackers. Visitors can also take home Action Tracker 3-Day Missions – activity logs that encourage people to get physically active for a total of 60 minutes a day.

The exhibit is sponsored by the Jennings & Rebecca Jones Foundation and runs through May 8.
