The Curious George exhibit currently on display at Boston's Children's Museum has welcomed over 119,000 visitors since opening in February.

Museum officials said the exhibit, called 'Curious George: Let’s Get Curious!' gives fans a chance to explore the world of Curious George while also learning about science, math, and engineering. The exhibit will be at the Museum through June 6, 2010.

"Based on the classic stories by H.A. and Margret Rey, the Curious George: Let’s Get Curious! exhibit inspires young children’s natural curiosity as they explore early science, math, and engineering through hands-on interactive play," Museum officials said in a statement. "The exhibit takes place in the neighborhood where Curious George lives with his friend, The Man with the Yellow Hat."

The Curious George television series airs locally on WGBH and is produced by Imagine Entertainment, WGBH Boston and Universal Studios Family Productions on PBS KIDS.

Along with the exhibit, Boston Children’s Museum is offering a variety of Curious George programming. On Saturday, April 10, visitors can count to 100 with Curious George as the Museum celebrates the 100th day of the year. Between April 22 and June 20, 2010, The Yellow Show will feature yellow artwork from 16 local artists in The Gallery. Regular science programs, including Kitchen Science and Critter Day, also have a Curious George theme during the run of the exhibit.
