Calling future first responders…this exhibit is for you!  Kids of all ages will love climbing aboard the REAL fire truck as part of a newly designed 900 square foot exhibit at Wonder Universe: A Children’s Museum.  

Wonder Universe, formerly the Children’s Museum of Blacksburg, is excited to expand and relocate to the NRV Mall in Christiansburg. With your support, the firefighter exhibit will come to life when the museum opens its new doors in Summer 2019! 

Imagine the fun of dressing up in a heavy firefighter’s jacket, sturdy hat and boots and racing to the rescue! Junior firefighters everywhere will explore the role of these most important community helpers as they use their imagination to create a storyline all their own! Kids will be captivated by the chance to rush to the rescue, steer the full size truck, flip all of the switches and grab the firehoses! This exhibit will not only inspire their creative side, it will help kids learn some fire safety basics like stop, drop and roll and how to crawl to safety in a fire emergency. Help us provide this unique, hands-on pretend play experience for little ones with your gift today.
