Celebrate World Architecture Day and the Hirshhorn’s birthday by exploring our building! Join us and Hirshhorn’s very own architecture expert Deane Madsen for a close-look of the Hirshhorn Plaza and read-aloud of Iggy Peck Architect by Andrea Beaty. Then, investigate the Hirshhorn building through hands-on construction activities and play.
Meet in the Museum Lobby.
Do this at home! In honor of the bundt-like shape of the Museum, pull out your favorite round cake pan and bake the Hirshhorn Museum! Instructions here.
Join Hirshhorn Kids on Wednesdays for a one-of-a-kind storytime experience! Each week offers a fun and fresh theme for our youngest artists and their adults. Get a fun and hands-on introduction to a new artwork each week, and participate in a joyful read-aloud filled with music, stories, and movement. Then, stay and play while your little artist creates. No reservations or tickets required. Nursing caregivers are welcome. Stroller parking is available in the Hirshhorn Lobby. An ASL Interpreter may be requested for this program; two weeks advance notice is appreciated. For a group of ten or more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a program in advance.
