Event Description

Designed for children ages fifteen months through three years and their caregivers, Toddler Thursdays engage children’s creativity and explore monthly topics with related artwork and self-guided tours, as well as new art-making activities to enjoy each week.

Explore, learn, and create every Thursday!

Two toddlers hold up their artworks on High's terrace.

Three time slots each Thursday:
10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

When you preregister online, please select the time slot you would like to attend and purchase tickets (children ages 5 and under are free, but we still require a headcount). This helps us prepare for your visit and ensure your safety according to CDC guidelines.

Space is limited. Preregistration is required.
Your ticket includes access to the Museum galleries.

Please note: face coverings are required for anyone over the age of two, even for visitors who have been fully vaccinated. A face shield can be worn but must be worn in conjunction with a face covering for entry. Seating at Toddler Thursday is based on social distancing guidelines. The Greene Family Learning Gallery is temporarily closed to minimize the spread of COVID-19. For additional information, please see the Reopening FAQs.
