The Berenstain Bears: Down a Sunny Dirt Road

Spend the day in Bear Country at The Strong museum.

Start your journey by giving big bear hugs to life-size sculptures of Mama, Papa, Brother, and Sister Bear (don’t forget your camera!). Then, walk down Bear Country Main Street where a honey-pot of exciting activities awaits at the stores and businesses inspired by the books:

  • Design a quilt or work at the counter at Mama Bear’s Quilt Shop.
  • Build creations with pretend tools and construction toys at Papa Bear’s Woodworking Shop.
  • Serve up some lunch at the Bear Family Restaurant.
  • Don a lab coat and check a giant set of teeth at Dr. Bearson’s Dentist Office.
  • Visit a barn, barnyard, and fruit and vegetable stand filled with learning activities at Farmer Ben’s Farm.
  • Make new friends at Brother and Sister Bear’s Club Houses.
