Totoro and Cat Bus at Minnesota Children's Museum

Totoro and Cat Bus at Minnesota Children's Museum

Today's photo comes from the My Neighbor Totoro exhibit at the Minnesota Children's Museum in St. Paul. It was part of their "Jump to Japan" exhibit which teaches kids about Japanese culture, its customs, and the like. Totoro was chosen since it holds the title of "most beloved children's movie" in Japan. Jump to Japan is touring around the US for the forseeable future, so take a look and see if your city will be hosting a visit from Totoro and Catbus.

Oh, and yes, you can hop around inside Cat Bus. And, yes, it's really groovy cool. Makes me wish I had my own kids to share the fun.

Is this show still there and how do i find out what other cities it will be going to? Great stuff on your blog by the way.

The "Jump to Japan" exhibit ended its run in St. Paul earlier this year, and I'm afraid I don't know where else it will be touring. I do know it will continue to tour the US for the next two or three years, and I would expect all the major cities in the US to receive a visit. I just don't know the actual schedule after Minnesota. Sorry. If I learn something, I'll be sure to pass it along.

Thats too bad , I was actually thinking of putting the whole family on a plane and flying out there from Florida just to see the show. Thanks for responding to my comment, I love all the art and photos you have posted on your site, I never get enough of Ghibli, Miyazaki, or anything similar. Thanks
