Museum Mice Preschool Tours

Enjoy a tour for our smallest of visitors! The Museum Mice preschool series tours will be offered to toddlers and young children and their parents, grandparents, or caregivers. Different topics will be offered weekly on Wednesdays from June 19 to July 31 (excluding July 3), from 10:30 to 11:30 am.

What is Museum Mice?
During the Museum Mice Tours, preschool children and their families will be immersed in historic stories and themes where you will explore history through shapes, sounds, games, and hands on activities. Each week, a story is read, followed by an activity and a visit to a space at the museum that corresponds with the chosen book.

The tour is based on programs by the Smithsonian Institute’s Early Enrichment Center.
