A new traveling exhibit created by Children's Museum of
Pittsburgh that links familiar childhood objects to a process of
manufacturing that combines people, ideas and technology. Inspired
by the factory tour segments from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, the
exhibit offers hands-on activities using real factory tools and
machines to create objects including crayons, a baseball bat and a
matchbox car, just to name a few.
The exhibit features the illustrations of W. W. Denslow, a
Chicago resident whose famous illustrations helped to inspire the
design of the classic 1939 MGM film starring Judy Garland. The
bright and colorful exhibit provides a variety of learning
opportunities and hands-on activities within a three-dimensional
representation of Denslow's distinctive illustrations.
