Storytime is currently a drop-in experience. Join Hirshhorn educators any time between 10 am–noon; we will host read-alouds at 10:30 am and 11:30 am. ASL interpretation is provided at the 10:30 reading.

What makes you who you are? Explore identity with us and educators from the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum. Express yourself with movement, music, and more at this week’s Storytime. Get inspired by a close look at Mis Cuatro Gracias (Brendan, Camilo, Carlos, Jorge), by artist Aliza Nisenbaum; read Why Am I Me?, by Paige Britt; and make our own artworks celebrating ourselves! 

Meet on the Plaza.

Do this at home! Grab some paper, small objects and scissors and get ready to explore identity and create a collage self-portrait! Instructions here.

Three black and white photos printed onto regular printer paper sit fanned out on a wooden surface.


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 tons of 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. ASL is provided at the 10:30am reading. If there are additional access services or accommodations that can make your experience more inclusive, please contact hmsgeducation@si.edu; 1–2 week’s advance notice is recommended but not required. Groups of ten or more, should contact hmsgeducation@si.edu with their requested program date and group details.
