Meet Leonardo and Donatello during
Ninja Turtles Adventure Weekend
at The Strong Museum
October 7–9

Leap into The Strong museum for three days filled with turtle power during Ninja Turtles Adventure Weekend on Saturday, October 7 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Sunday, October 8 from 1 to 4 p.m.; and Monday, October 9 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Meet two of the turtles, enjoy activities inspired by the crime-fighting heroes, and more.

Say hello to the famous “heroes in a half shell,” Leonardo and Donatello! Pose for a photo with the turtles at a designated time by picking up a free ticket in The Strong’s Adams Atrium the day of the event. (While supplies last. One ticket per person.)

All weekend long, train like the turtles, toss a sewer lid, and stack pizza boxes in a race to see who is the fastest. Sniff out and try to identify different spices used in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ favorite food—pizza! Marvel at real painted box turtles and learn how they defend themselves from predators with staff from Helmer Nature Center. Meet local artist Sal Otero and discover his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle-inspired artwork.

All Ninja Turtles Adventure Weekend activities are included with general museum admission fees. Programs underwritten in part by Delta Air Lines, the official airline of The Strong.

The exhibit was produced by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Nickelodeon. ©2017 Viacom International Inc. All Rights Reserved. Nickelodeon, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES and all related titles, logos, and characters are trademarks of Viacom International Inc.
