Little Wonders - Stories and Activities for Preschoolers

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 at a reduced rate 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!
