The Pigeon Comes to Boston! A Mo Willems Exhibit

Temporary Exhibit

The Pigeon Comes to Boston! A Mo Willems Exhibit, the Museum's newest temporary exhibit, invites you to visit the whimsical world of beloved children's book author Mo Willems and his cast of lovable characters, including best friend duo Elephant Gerald 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!

Young learners can watch Elephant and Piggie dance with old-time animation; spin a washing machine to look for Knuffle Bunny; launch foam hot dogs at The Pigeon; view 20 framed reproductions of Mo Willems drawings and sketches that illuminate the evolution of his most popular characters.

Simple stories inspire play and reveal the rich, emotional lives of Mo's characters. The challenges of growing up, like learning to make yourself understood, or figuring out what it means to be a good friend, are gentle themes throughout this interactive exhibit.
