Complete with interactive features like the giant octopus with motion sensors that blows bubbles as guests pass under.  Representative of how the giant octopus mom actually protects it's 100,000 eggs by gently aerating the eggs by blowing across their tiny, gestating bodies for up to a year.

The free exhibit will include an eagle, an octopus and an orangutan that reaches up to 24 feet in height. With the input of wildlife expert and advocate, Dave Salmoni, the installation will take visitors and their loved ones on an educational expedition to chronicle motherly instincts through visual storyboards of incredible animals, including the human mother.  Great educational opportunity for children, and adults!

There will also be a photo booth where you will have the opportunity to take a photo with your child, and appear on the screen as a part of the exhibit.

I had the opportunity to attend the press preview and got to see a little behind the scenes as well.  The location for the exhibition couldn't have been better, right under the Brooklyn Bridge and steps away from enjoying the rest of the weekend day with your family.

The “Protect Like A Mother” Exhibit is open to the public on Saturday, May 20 and Sunday, May 21 from 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. EDT in Brooklyn Bridge Plaza at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
