For 77 years, he's romped, played, explored and experienced an array of adventures with countless young children eager to know more about the world around them.

But for the first time, Curious George - the childlike monkey in the series of popular children's books by H.A. and Margret Rey, as well as the star of the #1 PBS KIDS television show - will make Greenville his temporary home.
During the summer of 2017, the insatiable curiosity of Curious George will come to life at the Upcountry History Museum - Furman University through a special exhibition titled Curious George: Let's Get Curious! The project, designed and developed in partnership with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group, introduces children ages 2-8 to Curious George's world.

The bi-lingual (English and Spanish) exhibition takes place in the neighborhood where Curious George lives with his friend, The Man in the Yellow Hat. Letting natural curiosity and inquiry be their guides, children explore familiar buildings and locales from the Curious George books and the television series, leading visitors on a fun and interactive adventure.

Encouraging visitors to learn like George - through direct experience and problem solving, the exhibit emphasizes early STEAM concepts - Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Learning experiences are based on educational standards developed by an advisory panel from the PBS KIDS series, as well as national science, math and literacy standards for young children.

Supporting characters appear throughout the exhibit, helping to provide context, and to deliver caregiver and take-home messages.

The result is a three-dimensional, fully developed world that resonates with young visitors, while still appealing to the grown-ups in their lives who are just as fond of the loveable little monkey created in 1939 by H.A. and Margret Rey.
