Friday Play Dates: Creative Story Time

We always have fun in the Hands-On Centre - art-making, constructing, storytelling, costume play, making new friends and exploring. Now there is another reason to visit! Join us on Friday morning for a creative story time just for little ones.
*Programs change frequently and are exhibition based.

Start time is 11 am – somewhat flexible depending on numbers; if necessary we might start a bit late.

Listen to a story, dress up and act out the story, play a game or make a little storybook...we tell stories in the most creative and playful ways.

Admission to the Centre included in General Admission ticket, or free unlimited admission with your family membership.
