Children’s Museum of Manhattan’s “The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop” Open Thru December 31st 

“The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop” Features an Indoor “Ice” Skating Rink 

New Interactive Exhibit Immerses Children in the World of Dr. Seuss’ Classic Holiday Tale 

Cindy-Lou Who, the lovable dog Max, the “Mean One” himself, The Grinch, and the rest of the residents of Who-ville will come to life at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) in the new interactive experience The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop which runs from October 25 through December 31. CMOM is located at 212 West 83rd Street (between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue), New York, NY. 

Based on Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, visitors will be transported into the story of how a grumpy Grinch, determined to ruin Christmas for the town of Who-ville, learns that generosity and the holiday spirit are not tied to gifts. With gallery walls draped in scenes from the book, including Cindy-Lou at the Who-ville holiday feast where the transformed Grinch carves the “roast beast,” the interactive exhibit is a great and fun way to promote creativity, a love of reading and draw upon the lessons learned by the Grinch. 

New to The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop this year is a special indoor “ice” skating rink where kids can take off their shoes and “skate” in their socks. The synthetic ice rink is safe, fun and provides thrills without any chills. 

The Grinch’s Holiday Workshop features daily and weekly programming. For more information and details regarding all of CMOM’s programs and initiatives, please visitwww.cmom.org.
