Adventures with Clifford The Big Red Dog™

Sept. 22, 2018 to Jan. 6, 2019

A traveling exhibit in the Lubbock Children’s Museum at the Science Spectrum.

Board the Birdwell Island Ferry and journey to the world of Clifford™, America’s beloved Big Red Dog with a heart to match. See Emily Elizabeth™ and many of the other residents of Birdwell Island. Inspired by Scholastic Entertainment’s TV show Clifford The Big Red Dog® on PBS KIDS®, the exhibit offers numerous immersive “paws-on” adventures that reinforce “Clifford’s Big Ideas” – ten simple tangible life lessons designed to help younger children navigate their world:

  • Share
  • Be Truthful
  • Play Fair
  • Be Kind
  • Have Respect
  • Believe in Yourself
  • Help Others
  • Be Responsible
  • Be a Good Friend
  • Work Together

Kids can visit a colossal nine-foot high Clifford with a tail to slide down, just like Emily Elizabeth does on the television show. Children can help fill Clifford’s big dog bowl with bones using a conveyor belt, and find “bone”-a-fide treasures at T-Bones Beach.

At other exhibit areas, children will be able to join many of the show’s iconic characters at places they have seen on TV including:

  • Help “Victor” and “Pedro” steer the Birdwell Island ferry past the island’s lighthouse
  • Say “hello!” to “Samuel” and “Charley”, and then pull up a stool and place an order at Samuel’s Fish and Chips Shack
  • Hunt for seashells at T-Bones’s Beach
  • Take a seat inside Clifford’s giant doghouse to create masterpieces to take home or mail to Island residents
  • Put on a show with “Mac” at Emily Elizabeth’s Backyard Theater
  • Visit the Howard’s House
  • Play in Cleo’s Backyard
  • Sort mail with “Mr. Carson” at the Birdwell Island Post Office
  • Take a break with “Ms. Lee” at the Birdwell Island Library and read from a collection of Clifford books.
  • “Jetta” invites visitors to browse the Norman Bridwell Art Retrospective and see 50 years (that’s 350 in dog-years!) of artwork and stories by the creator and award-winning author of Clifford The Big Red Dog.
