Based on the award-winning PBS KIDS television series Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood and grounded in Fred Rogers' landmark curriculum on social and emotional learning, this exhibit lets you step into Daniel Tiger's world and join him and his friends to explore some favorite places.
Your child will work with others 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 the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh in partnership with the Fred Rogers Company, brings to life the themes of 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.
Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: A Grr-ific Exhibit opens September 18 and is open during regular museum hours.
