For ages 0-36 months
This program is temporarily suspended
Because Baby Bloomers serves a great number of children under the age of 24 months—who are not required to wear masks as part of Thinkery’s health and safety protocols—it creates a higher possibility of COVID-19 transmission for visitors and staff.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to temporarily suspend the program.
Toddlers take over the museum during
Baby Bloomers is a special program during which the museum is open exclusively for visitors ages 0–3 years and their families.
Now being offered on Saturday mornings from 8 – 10 am. Baby Bloomers provides caregivers and early learners the chance to experience Thinkery together in an environment focused solely on them.
For the health and safety of our guests, we are limiting capacity and will host the program on the second floor only. Activities are intended to be self-guided and promote safe distancing amongst guests. We will host two Story Times and free play that support the social, emotional, and cognitive development of our earliest learners.
Reserve your tickets in advance to enjoy open-ended explorations and
learning through play.
