The Pigeon Comes to Chicago: A Mo Willems Exhibit - opens September 21, 2019

Join beloved Mo Willems characters Knuffle Bunny, Elephant and Piggie, and The Pigeon himself as their stories come to life in this hands-on exhibit.

From September 21, 2019 through January 12, 2020, little ones (and their grownups) will be able to:

  • Have a hilarious conversation in the voices of Elephant Gerald and Piggie at a double-sided phone booth.

  • Make Elephant and Piggie dance with old-time animation.

  • Put on a wearable bus and take a drive around the exhibit.

  • Spin the laundromat washing machine and uncover Knuffle Bunny and other surprises!

  • Dress up Naked Mole Rat and send him down the runway for a one-of-a-kind fashion show.

  • Stack lightweight blocks to create their own terrible monster or funny friend.

  • Launch foam hot dogs at The Pigeon and play the plinko game to give the Duckling a cookie.

  • Try out art techniques that Mo uses for his own books.

The Pigeon Comes to Chicago!: A Mo Willems Exhibit was co-organized by Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh and The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art.
