Carson Tahoe Health unveiled its updated healthcare exhibit inside the Children’s Museum of Northern Nevada.

Designed to demystify technology and procedures used by healthcare professionals, the gallery provides children the opportunity to explore career choices, learn about the importance of keeping their bodies healthy, and use equipment such as stethoscopes and blood pressure cuffs. Additionally, the exhibit now features a newborn play station, as well as an interactive X-ray machine reader. Children also can get into character by dressing up in provided lab coats and scrubs.

“The Children’s Museum of Northern Nevada is committed to providing exhibits that are focused on play-based learning, which has shown to be one of the most effective techniques for educating children,” said Luana Olsen, Director of Children’s Museum of Northern Nevada. “We are grateful for our partnership with Carson Tahoe Health, and we appreciate their continued support in creating an exhibit that will benefit many generations to come.”

Carson Tahoe has been the official sponsor of the hospital exhibit for more than two decades. With the updated hands-on features, participants can enjoy new activities, opportunities, and experiences.

“Carson Tahoe Health is excited to offer an interactive exhibit that provides an entertaining and educational experience for children and families in our community,” said Ed Epperson, president and CEO of Carson Tahoe Health. “The gallery reflects our dedication to supporting the health and education of our youth. We are grateful to have this unique opportunity to present information on important health and wellness topics in a dynamic way that is easy to understand.”

Carson Tahoe’s updated healthcare exhibit, located inside the Children’s Museum of Northern Nevada at 813 N. Carson St. in Carson City, is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.

The museum will continue to be open during the Carson Street construction project. Due to construction, visitors are asked to park on E. Ann Street and behind the building on Plaza Street.
