Families Together

Spend the morning together – playing, wondering, and learning.  Each month we will explore a different theme inspired by the Smithsonian’s collections. Families move at their own pace as they engage in activities designed for children ages 0 – 8. The class concludes with a visit to the museum led by one of our expert educators.
