We're currently closed. We're open again on Thursday (December 8, 2022) from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Ideal for kids ages 2-16, XOXO invites children (and their caregivers) to take a deep breath and focus on the now. You’ll work together through hands-on activities to spark conversations, share emotions, and most of all, play and nurture your child's creative confidence. You may feel whimsical and silly; heartfelt and emotional; maybe even a little vulnerable. You are safe to explore it all here. At this exhibit, visitors can:

  • Illuminate a hidden message about love by Holding Hands
  • Answer questions about love and community, and tie them to the Response Wall for others to read
  • Work together to Balance on a seesaw or connect an infinite Story Puzzle 
  • Create Silhouettes using a unique set up of light boxes
  • Build and explore a variety of facial expressions using Empathy Blocks 
  • Speak intoTone Phones and see your voice projected on a screen
  • Be a part of a community digital mural
  • Write down thoughts and press them into Tokens of Love, and much more!

XOXO: An Exhibit About Love & Forgiveness was created by the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, with support from The Fetzer Institute. Local presenting sponsor is the City of Rancho Cordova Community Enhancement Fund.
