Travel to Argentina with C’mon!

Children and their families will feel like they have traveled to exciting Argentina as they explore The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples’ newest exhibit, Argentina’s Niños!

Featuring five immersive environments, visitors will be introduced to Spanish as they explore an Argentine school and learn about Casa Rosada (Pink House), the office of Argentina’s President, similar to the United States’ White House. Honoring the country’s love for “futbol” (soccer), children will be able to dress in an Argentine national futbol team kit (uniform) and take a penalty shot like Argentina’s star player Lionel Messi. At the market, families will shop for produce, select a sweet treat from the bakery, or visit a butcher to gather ingredients to grill a traditional Argentine family meal. Families will enjoy making empanadas and mate, a popular drink in Argentina, in a traditional home. Children will also learn about the gauchos, as well as explore the countryside as they climb the Andes Mountains. This enriching exhibit features a replica of La Boca, a beautiful neighborhood where children can contribute to a vibrant street painting, just like they would find in Argentina.
