Storytelling in the Museum


Storytelling programs immerse our youngest visitors and their families in historic objects and Museum settings through both traditional and contemporary storybooks. Children will also enjoy a hands-on craft. Each 45–minute session is FREE. This program is recommended for children ages 2–5. Kids only! Adults are welcome with children.   

Check it out! We now offer storytelling in Spanish. Cuentos en español en el museo is held once a month on Thursdays or Saturdays. 

Please note: These storytelling programs aren't intended for groups. Our space is limited, and we want everyone to have a high-quality experience. We ask that groups with 6 or more children call (314) 454-3114 to discuss options for attending Storytelling in the Museum. Early childhood groups, preschools, daycares, and play groups are invited to make advance reservations for free, private storytelling sessions. Groups of 6 or more won't be permitted to attend the regularly scheduled programs.
