This year’s special exhibit, “George Creegan: The Man Behind the Mouse” celebrates the life and work of Dr. George Creegan (1936-2018), the creator of Pip the Mouse. With a doctorate in elementary education, Dr. Creegan was delighted that we are not only continuing the Pip the Mouse tradition, but that Pip has become the mascot at an educational museum!
