Storytelling at the Museum
These programs engage our youngest visitors and their families in historic objects and museum settings by using traditional and contemporary story books. Children will also enjoy a hands-on craft or other activity. Each 45-minute session is Free. Programs are held Fridays at 10:30 in the museum’s galleries and on Saturdays in a classroom. Stories are recommended for children ages 2-5. Kids only! Adults welcome with children. Check with the Information Desk for locations.
*Storytelling Workshops return for the winter! The classroom-turned-kidzone is now open from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays. Storytelling will still take place at 10:30 a.m., but join us before or after storytelling to play with puppets, make crafts, build a puzzle or escape to the rainbow retreat to read stories on your own.
Please Note: Groups with 6 or more children must call 314-454-3114 for chaperone requirements and to make reservations for an alternate day and time. Groups of 6 or more will not be permitted to attend at the regularly scheduled program. This program is an enriching individualized experience that works best with small groups. Group reservations will result in a higher quality experience for the group.
