NAPLES, Florida (January 13, 2022) – After more than three decades of battling evil and exemplifying teamwork, the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) will appear in a museum exhibit for children and families to enjoy at the Children Museum of Naples. 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™ opening on January 23 in Naples, Florida.
At the Children’s Museum of Naples, families 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 whole is often greater than the sum of its parts and we are hoping children and adults will be able to discover this in their own families as they work together. Along the way, our visitors will discover how each member of the team has something unique to contribute and they can accomplish a lot more together than they can alone,” said Jennifer Pace Robinson, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.
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 game and mind-teasing puzzles, families and friends will learn skills to help them successfully work together. Here are a few examples:
The Turtles took the comic book world by storm in 1984—and since then Donnie, Raph, Leo, and Mikey have brought Turtle Power to cartoons, movies, video games and toys!
Children and families across the nation will have the opportunity to explore Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™: Secrets of the Sewer™ as it travels to children’s museums and science centers coast to coast.

The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples is a brain-building powerhouse and Southwest Florida’s first museum devoted for children and families to learn through play. With hands-on exhibit galleries, the accessible museum invites visitors of all ages to journey through the swamps of the Everglades, weave through a maze, climb a two-story banyan tree, or experiment with the water play station. Children can become a weather forecaster, a farmer, a chef, a fisherman, an artist, an architect, or a veterinarian; explore the cold of an igloo, the whoosh of the wind, the sound of the sea, and the effects of gravity. Throughout the day special activities encourage our guests to get involved, try something new and be energized.
