Museum Babies


A 4-Week Sensory Program for Babies & Their Adults

$78 for all 4 weeks / $68 for members
$22 to drop in for one or more weeks

Pre-registration is required to attend.

An infant’s social understanding starts at home and expands as they explore the world. These interactions significantly influence how and what children learn.

This program helps Museum Babies shape their knowledge and understanding of the world through sensory experiences, play, and exploration. Museum Babies learn by interacting with and manipulating objects from the Museum’s Education Collection.

Museum Babies focus on different themes when they visit each week, enjoying hands-on activities, creating take-home crafts, and singing songs and nursery rhymes. After the program, everyone is welcome to explore the Museum Galleries for as long as they like.

Sessions of 90 minutes usually take place in the morning and themes include PLAY, ANIMALS. SOUNDS, and COLOURS.

  •  PLAY: Museum Babies explore our collection of historical toys, developing imagination, concentration, self-confidence, and sociability skills.
  •  ANIMALS: A whole new world of wonder opens up as Museum Babies encounter animals from our collection.
  • SOUNDS: Museum Babies take in information about the world around them experiencing everyday noises and sounds found in nature.
  • COLOURS: Colour captures the attention of Museum Babies as they discover some of the most treasured, brightly decorated items in our collection.

Each visit includes some classroom time where we sing songs and do hands-on activities, as well as Museum Gallery sensory experiences. Though this program is designed for babies aged 6 to 12 months (sitting but pre-walking stage), walking babies are also encouraged to participate.
