The Kansas Children’s Discovery Center will present the nationally traveling Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: A Grr-ific Exhibit from January 27 to May 14, 2023. Created by the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh in partnership with Fred Rogers Productions, this exhibit is based on the award-winning PBS KIDS television series that follows the adventures of 4-year-old Daniel Tiger and his friends.
Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: A Grr-ific Exhibit 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. Exhibit elements include an Imagination Stage, where kids can put on costumes of series characters and step onto the stage to act; The Music Shop, where children can express themselves through unusual instruments; The Post Office, where they can sort, deliver and receive packages and letters; and a Thank You Tree, where visitors can write or draw thank-you notes and put them on the tree.
Regular admission applies, which is $9 for children and adults, $8 for seniors and free for infants under 12 months and Discovery Center members. Admission also lets you play all day at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center, with more than 15,000 square feet of indoor educational exhibits exploring science, careers, art, building and more, plus a 4.5-acre certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom.
The exhibit will also be open during monthly free nights on February 16, March 16, and April 20.
