View Related Pages

Toddlers get the chance to experience Docent-led gallery tours designed specifically for them.

ToddlerTime Tours, a collaboration between the Museum and the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, will serve as a sequel to the popular Baby Tours and provide tykes a two-part, multi-sensory experience with works of art. First, parents and their children ages 18 to 36 months can attend a Library storytime themed to connect with a Museum painting; the next week, they’ll get to see it during a hands-on tour at the Museum, engaging with interactive learning materials (like fabrics and wooden blocks) that help bring the work to life. A children’s librarian will be on hand for an in-gallery story experience to complete the tour.

Pre-registration is required, but parents can choose to attend one or both programs.
