Did you know that the Missouri History Museum isn’t just for adults? Babies and toddlers can enjoy it too! A storytelling program made just for them launched about a year ago.
The History Clubhouse is an interactive space for kids and families on the first floor of the museum. It is where a storytelling program called Museum Babies is held. This activity started as just being two times a month but was so popular the museum now offers it twice a week. Museum Babies is 15 minutes long and includes songs, movements, and sensory experiences. This event is designed for children from 6-months to 2-years old.
The museum explains that storytelling is often a first-entry point for young visitors to the museum, so they try to make it a fun experience for children and their families. It is a great way to get children comfortable being in the museum setting and it brings the familiar practice of reading a book into a special setting. The History Clubhouse is also a place where families can meet other families and their children can make friends and learn through play.
Visitors can experience Museum Babies storytelling for free every Tuesday and Friday at 10:10AM.
