Families Together

Families Together’s mission is to create an atmosphere of lifelong learning. Families are invited to spend time together exploring a topic inspired by the Smithsonian’s collections. Different activities are available for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and early elementary aged children.  Families can choose to stay and play or go on a museum visit too. Explore, wonder, observe, and learn!
