Have you ever wanted to fly in the sky? Join us and the National Air and Space Museum to explore nature from a bird’s-eye view at this week’s Storytime. We’ll read Sky Color by Peter H. Reynolds, look closely at Alma Thomas’s painting Sky Light, and create collaboratively with sky-inspired art-making and play! 

Meet in the Museum Lobby on Level One.

Do this at home! Explore color through your senses! Sensory bins are wonderfully versatile for different ages. Instructions here.

Join Hirshhorn Kids on Wednesdays for a one-of-a-kind Storytime experience!

Each week offers a fun and fresh theme for kids (from birth to age 8) and their caregivers. We encourage all to get hands-on with our art maker projects inspired by the Hirshhorn’s collection, plus enjoy read-alouds filled with music, tales, and tons of movement.

Storytime is always free, no reservations or tickets required.

Museum doors will open at 10am, where our Hirshhorn Kids staff will happily greet you in the Lobby and share the day’s program. Feel free to play in the Lobby while others get settled—the Storytime group will leave for the galleries at 10:15am.

Nursing caregivers are welcome. Stroller parking is available in the Hirshhorn Lobby and on the Lower Level. If there are access services or accommodations that can make your experience more inclusive (e.g., ASL interpretation), please contact hmsgeducation@si.edu . 1-2 weeks advance notice is recommended but not required.
