Kids & Families
ROAR! Ringling Order of Art Readers
ROAR! is The Ringling’s family storytime designed to engage toddlers and preschoolers in activities that connect art with early literacy. Join us in for a story and an accompanying activity.
Join a Museum educator for a one-hour tour designed for parents or caregivers visiting the museum with an infant. This tour allows for adult discussion within a group that does not mind if a chatty or crying baby joins the conversation.
These special days are fun for the whole family! Join us for art making, and activity stations. We will also distribute themed family activity booklets to use in the galleries.
The David F. Bolger Playspace
The Playspace is available for families and school groups to enjoy. A tower and slide, basket swings, hand-powered fountains and other novel pieces of equipment promise to deliver good times and gales of laughter.
