Join the ad­ven­tures of Daniel Tiger and all his PBS friends when “Daniel Tiger’s Neigh­bor­hood: A Grr-ific Ex­hibit” opens in the Cre­ative Dis­cov­ery Mu­seum on May 26.

Cre­ated by the Chil­dren’s Mu­seum of Pitts­burgh, Penn­syl­va­nia, in part­ner­ship with The Fred Rogers Co., t his ex­hibit is based on the award-win­ning PBS Kids tele­vi­sion se­ries that fol­lows the ad­ven­tures of 4-year- old Daniel Tiger. The part­ner­ship con­nects the fa­mil­iar TV world to the mul­ti­sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence the ex­hibit pro­vides.

The new ex­hibit will re­main at the chil­dren’s mu­seum through Sept. 9.

CDM will cel­e­brate the ex­hibit’s ar­rival with an open­ing- day event on Satur­day from noon to 4 p. m. In ad­di­tion to all the fun the ex­hibit has to of­fer, guests can en­joy face paint­ing, a Daniel Tiger dance party and tasty snacks in the Al­pha­bet Rain­bow Buf­fet. Daniel Tiger will also make sev­eral ap­pear­ances dur­ing the event to greet lit­tle fans and pose for photo- ops.

In “Daniel Tiger’s Neigh­bor­hood: A Grr- ific Ex­hibit,” chil­dren ages 2 to 6 ex­plore Daniel’s neigh­bor­hood. Vi s i - tors can walk the paths and hear the sounds of Daniel’s world as they en­counter the mean­ings of em­pa­thy, grat­i­tude, shar­ing and di­ver­sity in an en­vi­ron­ment of in­ter­ac­tive play. Kids can sing along with Daniel and work to­gether to solve prob­lems.

“This ex­hibit is go­ing to be a won­der­ful ad­di­tion to the mu­seum this sum­mer,” says Henry Schul­son, CDM ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor .“The themes of un­der­stand­ing, kind­ness, shar­ing and ac­cep­tance through­out the ex­hibit align per­fectly with our vi­sion of mak­ing our com­mu­nity the best place for a child to grow up.”
