The Pigeon Comes to Pittsburgh

A Mo Willems Exhibit

Spend an exciting day with the characters of beloved children's book author and illustrator Mo Willems, including best friend duo Elephant and Piggie, faithful companion Knuffle Bunny, and The Pigeon, the wily city bird best known for his antics in Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

  • Spin the laundromat washing machine and uncover Knuffle Bunny and other surprises!
  • Dress up your Naked Mole Rat and send him down the runway for a one-of-a-kind fashion show!
  • Stack lightweight blocks to create your own terrible monster or funny friend!
  • Launch foam hot dogs at The Pigeon and play the plinko game to give the Duckling a cookie!
  • Create art inspired by the work of Mo Willems!
  • And more!
