Look, touch, come inside and find the hidden pennies and pickles.
How long has it been since you’ve ventured inside the great Professor Pennypickle’s Old Town Temecula workshop? Things inside are never quite the same twice. Now, Pennypickle’s Workshop houses Temecula’s award-winning science-based Children’s Museum located at 42081 Main Street, Old Town Temecula, is proud to announce its tenth anniversary on June 25, 2014.
To celebrate, the Friends of the Temecula Children’s Museum will be hosting 10 days of wacky fun and surprises from June 20-June 29, 2014.
It is the perfect time to purchase an annual membership to the museum, as events galore are on the way. And yes, you heard that from the Professor, himself.
Sponsored by the City of Temecula, Southwest Healthcare, and others, the museum curator, “Professor Pennypickles” spokesperson states, “Children sense, but don’t ever see, the Professor’s presence throughout the “house” as they discover inventions like his time machine, magnetic kitchen sink , “Phil-harmonica-matic” piano, peanut-butter-and-jelly-sandwich-making-machine, and the “beryllium conjunctifier”.
The eccentric Professor Phineus T. Pennypickle’s workshop-home is stuffed to the rafters with inventions, gadgets, and gizmos that spellbind kids of all ages and fascinate their parents as well.”
The museum is famous not only for its unique, “horror-vaccui” floor to ceiling experiments, pictures, diagrams, and scavenger hunts, it also boasts fan nights for the latest and greatest in both television, motion pictures, gaming, and stories. Some of the best nights have included: A celebration of Dr. Who, Harry Potter, Steam Punk, and more.
The Professor’s good friend and companion, “Beaker”, a small field mouse who nestles in the pocket of his lab coat and accompanies him on his adventures, can possibly be spotted hanging around the museum or gift shop.
Pennypickle’s 10th Anniversary Science-Events-Extravaganza will include activities such as a Time Travel Party for grown-ups, the Making Stuff with N8 Science Camp, the Amazing Science Show, and the Building-Crazy-Contraptions Family Workshop.
All proceeds from the Science-Events-Extravaganza benefit additional science-based programming at the Temecula Children’s Museum.
