A gigantic and massive Hello Kitty exhibit that celebrates Hello Kitty’s 40th anniversary will be on display at the Experience Music Project Museum, or EMP, in Seattle. The exhibit, which opens in November, recently wrapped up its run at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.

“Hello!! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty” aims to show the history of Hello Kitty and its influence on pop culture. The exhibit features more than 600 rare and unique pieces from creator Sanrio’s archives. The exhibit also offers an in-depth view into the evolution of Hello Kitty.

According to Jill Koch, senior vp of brand management and marketing, the EMP Museum is “the perfect home for our retrospective” because of EMP’s mission to “reach multigenerational audiences through powerful exhibits and programming focused on contemporary culture.”
