The Cryptid Critter Crawl
March 30 - August 30Free
Cryptids are legendary creatures unsubstantiated by science. They are also the subject of a new interactive outdoor exhibition on the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh and MuseumLab campus.
“The Cryptid Critter Crawl” and its eight interactive installations created by Pittsburgh artist Owen Lowery. Each sculpture includes the cryptid’s back story, geographic origin, legend and a fun fact. You can get the complete guide on the mobile website, which includes audio tales, a map and supplemental material like coloring pages. A Squonk, for example, is a sad creature that dissolves into a puddle of tears when frightened. You’ll find Bigfoot’s Lost Shoe and step inside the Mothman’s Chrysalis.
The free exhibit will remain on view through the summer. Plan your visit to include a spin on Los Trompos and a balance walk on ROPE.
