Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: A Grr-ific Exhibit brings to life the themes presented in the award-winning PBS Kids television series created by The Fred Rogers Company that follows the adventures of 4-year-old Daniel Tiger and his friends.
Step into Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood – where Daniel and his friends help young children navigate their world, and parents guide their journey. Play, sing, explore, and pretend in some favorite and familiar places from the Neighborhood. Try a fun activity, share a memory, and create grr-ific new ones on this beautiful day! Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood brings the wisdom and life lessons of Fred Rogers to a new generation.
“Daniel speaks directly to children, and he is their age,” notes Paul Siefken, President and Chief Executive Officer with The Fred Rogers Company. “Because of that, they see him as their friend, and he goes through a lot of the challenges that they face, whether it’s dealing with mad feelings or learning how to share.”
Through immersive experiences, visitors will work together 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.
