In celebration of Fred Rogers ’51’s birthday, March 20, Rollins will honor its most famous alumnus with a free self-guided campus walking tour of memorabilia. Treasured items include the sweater and sneakers he wore on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and his stone on the Rollins Walk of Fame.

The tour will run from March 5-31 during the regular operating hours of the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Tuesday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday-Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday-Sunday Noon to 5 p.m. The first of the five tour stops is the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, where you can pick up a map and souvenir tour sticker. 

CBS news correspondent Peter King recently visited campus to take the tour and discuss Rogers’ legacy at Rollins with music professor John Sinclair and communications manager Jo Marie Hebeler. 

Please note that the museum is closed on Mondays. Parking is available in the SunTrust parking garage on Lyman Avenue (fees apply) or in available public parking areas.
