For years, Lub Dub has been hard at work entertaining thousands of children with his winning personality and sharing important facts about heart health. And now he returns, updated to reflect changing times.

He’s a mascot of many talents – you’ll see him in running gear, going on safari, even saving the day as a Super Hero! Happy and healthy, Lub Dub takes visitors on Museum tours every day, even telling a few jokes along the way. Lub Dub is so cute he might just steal your heart!

Help Reduce Childhood Obesity in Arizona

By |February 16th, 2015|Categories: Events|Tags: , , , |0 Comments

hhcm1 Help Reduce Childhood Obesity in Arizona

The Halle Heart Children’s Museum is holding its first-ever fundraising event on June 3, 2015 to share our mission and help spread the word about the work we are doing to help create a generation of healthier kids. As part of this event, we are looking for sponsors — please see the attached flyer outlining the sponsorship levels for the breakfast event along with some additional longer-term museum partnership opportunities.

You probably already know that heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women in America, accounting for one out of every four deaths (or about 600,000) each year. But did you know that heart disease is around 80% preventable simply by eating a healthy diet, exercising and not smoking? Despite this, more than 25% of Arizona’s kids are overweight and 1 in 8 kids in Arizona are obese — all of which leads to a lifetime of heart health issues.

Each year more than 30,000 kids, teachers and parents tour the Halle Heart Children’s Museum to learn how to live a heart healthy life, and beginning this year we will educate thousands more kids now that we’re open to the general public for the first time. By being a sponsor at our breakfast Pearson can make a real difference in the health of Arizona’s kids.

Scout-Patch-300x300 You Gotta Have Heart - Girl Scout Day at the Halle Heart Children’s Museum

More than 200 Girl Scouts, troop leaders and chaperons took part in this year’s first Girl Scout Day on Sept. 27 at the Halle Heart Children’s Museum. Girls and adults from around the valley came together to learn the benefits of eating a balanced diet, not smoking and making sure exercise is part of their daily routine.

The scouts traveled through our interactive and hands-on exhibits where they received the tools needed to achieve true heart-healthy living. All scouts received a Lub Dub fun patch when they completed the Halle Heart Children’s Museum tour.

Watch for the next Girl Scout Day here at the museum, currently scheduled for Saturday, April 11, 2015 and make sure you sign up as soon as the spots are opened. Reservations go quickly! If you don’t want to wait until April, scout troops are always welcome to tour the museum by appointment.

Video Kiosks to Bring Self-Guided Tours to Museum

By |August 19th, 2014|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

Perhaps one of the best features of the Halle Heart Children’s Museum is that guests who visit the museum are treated to a tour by one of our specially-trained Heart Guides. The interaction between the visitor and the Heart Guide creates a powerful learning experience.

Yet as the museum begins to expand its reach and moves toward open public hours (more news about this to come soon), visitors will need another way to experience the museum. With that in mind, the museum is preparing to install video kiosks to provide visitors with self-guided tours.

Thanks in large part to a generous donation by Tempe-based IT company Insight, six video kiosks are on their way from a manufacturer in North Carolina and will be installed in the next few weeks. Each kiosk will provide visitors with a short video with information about the museum and details on how to interact with each exhibit. The self-guided tours should be fully operational by early autumn.

redcrusader-268x300 Video Kiosks to Bring Self-Guided Tours to MuseumInsight has also designed a dynamic graphic wrap for the kiosks to fit in with the colorful theme of the museum and draw visitors in to the machines. The kiosks will feature the museum’s mascot Lub Dub decked out as “superhero” the Red Crusader.

Stay tuned for more information about the video kiosk project as well as details about more exciting changes coming soon to the Halle Heart Children’s Museum.
