Delta Dental Health Theatre

Delta Dental Health Theatre

This popular fixture on Laclede’s Landing for the last 38 years is now housed in HealthWorks! Kids’ Museum St. Louis. It serves as an interactive learning center with unique, high-energy, educator-led programming that increases individual knowledge about the connection between personal choices and health outcomes, encourages positive health practices and turns visitors into health advocates for themselves, their families and this community. There is a menu of different program offerings, that change every few months, so groups and parties with little tikes, or even tweens, can find the perfect fit.
