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.

Cancellations or Exchanges:

Cancellations made 15 or more business days before the start of your program will receive a full refund minus a processing fee. Refunds cannot be made 2-weeks before the start of the program. Participants may not make up or receive a refund for missed programs. Thinkery reserves the right to cancel a program if registration for the event does not meet the minimum enrollment requirements. If Thinkery cancels a program, a full refund will be issued to all registrants. When possible, we allow a program participant to transfer to a different program if there are openings and the participant is the appropriate age. Two weeks’ notice is required.
