Happy International Museum Day!
We've got a SUPER way for you to celebrate the day, why, with none other than our museum-loving pals from 'Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum'.
Get ready to build amazing new museum rooms as you play ‘Xavier Museum Maker: Pioneers & Changemakers’ on PBSKIDS.org! Explore the Secret Museum with Xavier, Yadina and Brad and help them complete the Historical Hero exhibits!
Check out a walkthrough of the gameplay below to get a taste of what's involved:
In Museum Maker, players can enjoy 24 educational real life hero missions and 16 side missions! Create exhibits for real-life historical figures, who are known for doing great things that have never been done before. Locate hidden artifacts that are connected to a particular historical “pioneer” or “changemaker”, who are placed throughout the many rooms of the museum. Once an artifact is found, bring it back to the historical figure’s room to help create and complete a fantastic museum exhibit!
And there's plenty to learn along the way, just like in a real museum! Each artifact comes with an insightful fact about the historical hero it's related to. Find Amelia Earhart’s plane and learn that she flew across the Atlantic Ocean faster than anyone ever by being prepared; discover Ibn Battuta’s portrait and learn that he was one of the greatest travelers of all time.
Museum Maker combines BIG fun with valuable historical facts and beneficial social-emotional lessons, to create a totally AMAZING adventure game for kids.
So, HIT PLAY on Museum Maker and let the museum adventure begin!
And make sure to schedule a visit to your local museum to discover even more incredible historical goodness! You can start your research with this selection of online virtual tours of the World's Most Exquisite Museums and Galleries.
