An educator and four Hirshhorn kids dance in the hallway of the museum behind a vividly orange, red and brown section of Mark Bradford's Pickett's Charge

We’re switching up Storytime to a drop-in experience while we prepare new exhibitions for spring openings. Join Hirshhorn educators any time between 10 am–noon; we will host read-alouds at 10:30 am and 11:30 am.

How do you move your body? Join us for a reading of Tap! Tap! Tap!: Dance! Dance! Dance! by Hervé Tullet, and a close look at the artwork Samba to the Reckoning by Jessica Diamond. We’ll perform with our bodies and stretch the possibilities of our art-making materials. 

Meet on the Second Level.

Do this at home! Play with texture using playdough and a few simple materials. Instructions here.

A dark blue clump of playdough sits in the center of a red checkered board. A child’s hand reaches for a piece of pasta.


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. If there are access services or accommodations that can make your experience more inclusive (e.g., ASL interpretation, live captioning, etc.), please contact hmsgeducation@si.edu; 1–2 week’s advance notice is recommended but not required. For a group of ten or more, please contact mcgettigant@si.edu to reserve a program in advance.
