Stroller Tours

Babies are welcome! In fact, you need a baby in tow if you want to join this group for casual and lively discussions in the galleries led by museum educators--just for parents-caregivers and their pre-toddler-age children (18 months and younger). Expect a special kind of outing that allows for adult conversation, but where no one minds if a baby lends his or her opinion with a coo or a cry! Tours are limited to ten adults with children and meet at the information desk. No RSVP needed.
