The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan + Indoor Skating Rink

Children’s Museum of Manhattan Announces Opening of “The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop” 

Featuring an Indoor “Ice” Skating Rink

 New Interactive Exhibit Immerses Children in the World of Dr. Seuss’ Classic Holiday Tale


New York, NY–  Cindy-Lou Who, the lovable dog Max, the “Mean One” himself, The Grinch, and the rest of the residents of Who-ville will come to life at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) in the new interactive experience The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop which opens October 25 and runs through December 31. CMOM is located at 212 West 83rd Street (between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue), New York, NY.

Based on Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, and in partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises and supported by Accenture, visitors will be transported into the story of how a grumpy Grinch, determined to ruin Christmas for the town of Who-ville, learns that generosity and the holiday spirit are not tied to gifts. With gallery walls draped in scenes from the book, including Cindy-Lou at the Who-ville holiday feast where the transformed Grinch carves the “roast beast,” the interactive exhibit is a great and fun way to promote creativity, a love of reading and draw upon the lessons learned by the Grinch.

New to The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop this year is a special indoor “ice” skating rink where kids can take off their shoes and “skate” in their socks. The synthetic ice rink is safe, fun and provides thrills without any chills.

The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop features daily and weekly programming: Look for clues in The Workshop to answer scavenger hunt questions; follow the Grinch’s green handprints throughout the Museum to learn about the importance of community and helping; dive into fun, creative play by creating Dr. Seuss “rhyming hats,” two-sided Grinch masks and Max “the Rein-Dog” tree ornaments, and also create wacky Seussian words with Who-ville Mad-Libs.

Children can also steer Max, the Grinch’s unwitting “Rein-Dog,” on an oversized, interactive sleigh all the way to Who-ville, as well as gather around the Grinch’s whimsical, massive reading chair for storytelling with CMOM staff and special guests who will read How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and other classic Seuss books.

“Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a classic holiday story and a must-read for children of all ages,” said CMOM’s Executive Director Andrew Ackerman. “Dr. Seuss books have encouraged generations of kids to love reading, and will continue to do so for countless years to come. The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop brings to life, in a fun and dynamic way, the story and characters of Who-ville while also teaching the book’s lessons regarding the importance of human kindness and compassion.”
