Curious George™: Let’s Get Curious!

May 25 @ 10:00 am - October 6 @ 5:00 pm

Curious George™: Let’s Get Curious!
May 25, 2024 – October 6, 2024

For 85 years, he’s romped, played, explored and experienced an array of adventures with countless young children eager to know more about the world around them.

Curious George™, the childlike monkey in the popular children’s book series by H.A. and Margret Rey, as well as the star of the #1 PBS KIDS television show – will make Greenville his summer home, when he visits the Upcountry History Museum.

Curious George™: Let’s Get Curious! is an interactive learning experience, developed for children ages 2-8 and their caregivers.  Opening May 25, 2024, the 2500 square foot exhibit, designed in partnership with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group, invites visitors to step into the world of Curious George.

The hands-on, bi-lingual (English and Spanish) adventure takes place in the neighborhood where Curious George lives with his friend, The Man in the Yellow Hat. Letting curiosity and inquiry be their guides, visitors explore familiar buildings and locales with multigenerational appeal from the Curious George book series and television show on PBS.

Encouraging visitors to “learn like George” through direct experience and problem solving, the exhibit emphasizes early STEAM concepts – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Learning experiences are based on educational standards developed by an advisory panel from the PBS KIDS series, as well as national science, math and literacy standards for young children.

Supporting characters appear throughout the exhibit, helping to provide context, and to deliver both caregiver and take-home messages.

The result is a three-dimensional, fully developed world that resonates with young visitors, while still appealing to the grown-ups in their lives who are just as fond of the loveable little monkey created in 1939 by H.A. and Margret Rey.
