Clifford the Big Red Dog

Sept. 22, 2018 – Jan. 27, 2019

Board the Birdwell Island Ferry and journey to the world of Clifford, America’s beloved big red dog (with a heart to match!), where you’ll see Emily Elizabeth and all the residents of Birdwell Island. Inspired by Scholastic’s top-rated TV show Clifford the Big Red Dog™ on PBS Kids, the exhibit offers numerous immersive ‘paws-on’ adventures that reinforce Clifford‘s big ideas.

These 10 simple, tangible life lessons are designed to help young children navigate their world: share, play fair, have respect, work together, be responsible, be truthful, be kind, believe in yourself, be a good friend, and help others. Visit all of Clifford‘s favorite places on the island including Clifford’s doghouse, and a colossal 9-foot Clifford with a tail kids can slide down, just like Emily Elizabeth did on the television show! Kids can help fill Clifford’s big dog bowl with bones using a conveyor belt. Create sand art and find “bone-ified” treasures at T-Bone’s beach. Browse the Norman Bridwell art retrospective and see 40 years (that’s 280 dog years!) of Clifford art and stories and much more.
