Curious George

It’s been 75 years since readers first went ape over “Curious George.” But did you know WWII threw a monkey wrench into publishing plans?

Written and drawn by Hans Augusto Rey and Margret Rey, the couple fled Paris in June 1940 on self-made bicycles, carrying the “Curious George” manuscript with them and the rest became history!

Guests can take a historical journey and visit with Curious George as he swings by the Children’s Museum of Houston just in time for his 75th anniversary.
