Little Wonders - Preschool Program

Learn and Play! You and your child are invited to join us for stories and fun including crafts, songs, games, and museum exploration. Each month, we present a different theme and a different set of hands-on activities.

Second Friday of the month, 10:30 a.m.

Little Wonders is included with regular admission and is free for MNCH members. Families presenting Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards are admitted for $5 through the Museums For All program.

Each participating family gets 10 percent off museum store purchases (15 percent off for museum members). The store carries a variety of fun and educational gifts – including the Little Wonders book lineup!
