Feature Exhibit


The Adventures of MR. POTATO HEAD

Welcome to The Adventures of MR. POTATO HEAD! Follow our spudly hero on globe-trotting adventures through a tropical jungle, an archaeological dig, under the sea, and even in outer space! Each different area teaches children to welcome new experiences with confidence, curiosity and humor; to think about all they can be and do; and to always respect themselves and others.

POTATO HEAD’s knack for wacky escapades and familiar personality make for great fun for every potato fan. This special Feature Exhibit is also one of our largest, with elements spreading throughout the first floor of the Museum. Be sure to check your map, and don’t miss an adventure!

Entrance to The Adventures of MR. POTATO HEAD is included with general Museum admission.

Extended through Monday, February 20!

The Fantastic World of Dan Yaccarino
March 11 – May 14

The art of story is brought to life in this special exhibition inspired by the work of the award-winning children’s author and illustrator Dan Yaccarino. Alongside the original illustrations for well-loved favorites such as Unlovable and Cooking with Henry and Elliebelly, as well as Yaccarino’s newest book I Am A Story, children and families can step into newly-imagined interactive exhibit experiences inspired by the art, and created by Please Touch Museum. Star in your own cooking show live from Henry and Elliebelly’s kitchen, tell your story beside a kid-friendly campfire complete with roasting marshmallows, explore Alfred’s doghouse from Unlovable, and more. You’ll even be able to create your own art, and just might see it on our wall… Mark your calendar!
