The Museum is filling every day with Daily Drop-In programming. Not only are these drop-ins super fun…each one offers its own wealth of learning and developmental benefits. Come see for yourself!
Reading aloud is not only an enjoyable experience for children and adults to share together, but it also supports the development of early literacy skills, and fosters a lifelong love of reading. Join us daily as we embark on literary adventures, from the imaginations of Eric Carle, Mo Willems, Jane Yolen, and many other favorite childhood authors and illustrators.

Shake, rattle, and roll. Children love music! They feel music physically and emotionally. Young children are learning that movement communicates messages and represent actions. They “think with their bodies” well before they think with words. Body movement is not only fun for children but also a good opportunity for them to solve problems. So let’s get moving, have fun, and make some music!
