The Grand Rapids Children’s Museum is proud to present “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: A Grr-ific Exhibit” from January 27 through May 12, 2024. This new exhibit brings to life the themes presented in the award-winning PBS Kids television series created by The Fred Rogers Productions that follows the adventures of 4-year-old Daniel Tiger and his friends.

In “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: A Grr-ific Exhibit” children enter the world of Daniel Tiger and friends to explore the Neighborhood. Through immersive experiences, visitors collaborate to solve problems, use their imaginations to transform their surroundings and play along with Daniel’s singable strategies as they learn life’s little lessons. The exhibit, created by Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh in partnership with Fred Rogers Productions, brings to life the themes presented in the PBS series such as community, communication and emotions, which enables young children to understand their feelings and those of their neighbors. Visitors can walk the paths and hear the sounds of Daniel’s world as they encounter the meaning of empathy, gratitude, sharing and diversity in an environment of creative and interactive play. Through music, kids can also sing along with Daniel, work together to solve problems and even experience the contagious nature of kindness.

Along with the emotional lessons gleaned in the Neighborhood, visitors can:
Transform into to a favorite character with masks and costumes
Visit the Post Office and sort, deliver and receive packages and letters
Create stories through the Movable Character Mural
Step inside the Clock Factory to play with a variety of clocks
Write or draw thank-you notes and put them on the Thank You Tree.
Cozy up with a good book in O the Owl’s Reading Nest and
Stroll with a Trolley along the path, and ring the bell upon arrival!
