The Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has recreated the set of the classic American children’s television show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, which had been produced in Pittsburgh throughout the entirety of the series.

Featuring select artifacts from the popular children’s show, the new display marks the first time these items are on long-term view. Highlights from the “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” installation include:

  • The entryway and living room set that Mister Rogers walked through to begin each show;
  • King Friday XIII’s Castle;
  • Great Oak Tree, the residence of Henrietta Pussycat and X The Owl;
  • Picture Picture, the display that helped Mister Rogers teach children using interactive media;
  • McFeely’s “Speedy Delivery” tricycle; and
  • A variety of additional items from the “Neighborhood of Make-Believe,” including King Friday XIII’s telephone, Henrietta Pussycat’s outfit, Chef Brockett’s hat, Harriett Elizabeth Cow’s desk, and the bench that Mister Rogers sat on during each show.

Also on view is a life-like figure of Mister Rogers, wearing his iconic sweater, necktie, khakis, and sneakers.
