Toddlers take over the museum during Baby Bloomers! Baby Bloomers is a specially designed program where the museum is open just for visitors ages 0–3 years and their families. Held Mondays (9 am–noon) and Saturdays (9–10 am), the program provides caregivers and early learners the opportunity to experience Thinkery together in an environment focused solely on them. Monthly themes and special guests engage our youngest visitors in fun, hands-on explorations and learning through play. In addition to story time and other guided experiences, free-play is encouraged in museum galleries that support the social, emotional and cognitive development of our earliest learners.

Please note, Saturdays are limited to the second level of the museum, which includes Let’s Grow, Story Nook and Currents.
