You won’t need to ask for directions to get to Sesame Street anymore. The beloved show that taught you and your kids your ABCs and 123s is making its way to the New York Public Library this fall to celebrate 45 years on television! In collaboration with The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Sesame Workshop is inviting parents and kids to experience the magic behind the making of the show and the chance to see Muppet favorites like Elmo, Grover and the Count up close and personal. Original scripts, story boards, line sheets and other behind-the-scenes props will be on display too. Kicking off September 18th, the exhibit, titled: “Somebody Come and Play: 45 Years of Sesame Street Helping Kids Grow Smarter, Stronger, and Kinder,” isn’t one to miss!
The Sesame Street Workshop will also feature a variety of hands-on activities and story time for little ones and grown-ups to enjoy. Parents can help kids create art projects, play with games, apps and e-books, or watch show highlights in the company of Snuffy and Super Grover. There’s even a photo booth for taking selfies with Honkers! We’re SO in!
Free and open to the public, families can visit the library at 40 Lincoln Center Plaza from September 18th through January 31st to experience this special exhibit. For more information, visit the New York Public Library’s website. Come and play!
