Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Share Secrets of The Sewer, Ninja Tactics and Teamwork at the Center of Science and Industry in Columbus, Ohio


COLUMBUS, OH – After more than three decades of battling evil and exemplifying teamwork, the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) are now appearing in a museum exhibit at the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) in Columbus, Ohio. The four funny “heroes in a half shell” will share life lessons and team-building skills with their crime-fighting tactics in Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™: Secrets of the Sewer™, which opened on Saturday, September 21, 2019, and will be at the museum until Sunday, January 5, 2020.

Visitors will be transported to the underground home of the crime-fighting heroes to see what really happens in their secret hideaway. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brothers Leonardo (the tactical, courageous leader in blue), Michelangelo (the free-spirited jokester in orange), Raphael (the aggressive tough guy in red), and Donatello (the scientist and technological genius in purple) invite families to their New York City sewer lair to train together and learn about the Turtles’ comedic, skillful strategies.

The Turtles are known and respected for their teamwork. As the TMNT’s sensei and adoptive father Splinter often tells them, “Together there is nothing you cannot accomplish.” Through team-building challenges, collaborative games and mind-teasing puzzles, visitors will learn skills to help them successfully work together through activities such as:

• Build a “bridge” together and think creatively as a team to overcome challenges.
• Assemble two electrical circuit puzzles by taking one apart to build another.
• Plan ahead and use patience to navigate the rope maze.
• Practice ninja speed while playing a dexterity-based computer game.
• Shred up and practice your balance on skateboards.
• Create a sewer pipe together and see where it goes.

Entry to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™: Secrets of the Sewer™ is free with general admission of museum membership.
