ROAR! is our free storytime that connects art with early literacy. At this program, we read together, make art, and learn about an object in the museum. This program is designed for preschoolers and toddlers, but all ages are welcome!

This program is free, however tickets are required. Each ticket includes museum admission for the rest of the day.

Please enter through the Visitors Pavilion and look for the "Education Program" banner to have your tickets scanned and receive your wristbands. Tickets are limited and we encourage you to reserve tickets online, prior to your arrival.
