Mr. McFeely coming to history center

Mr. McFeely and Vietnam veterans will help the Senator John Heinz History Center open “1968 Exhibition: The Year That Rocked America” at 11 a.m. today.

The original set and several puppets from “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” are featured in the exhibit, marking the first time the “Mister Rogers’” set has been publicly displayed outside of WQED studios. Visitors also can interact with dozens of Vietnam veterans.

DJ Dave Zak will provide music until 1 p.m., and there will be docent-led tours of the exhibit, ’60s-themed trivia and a retro-themed photo booth.

All U.S. veterans and current military personnel will receive free admission today.
