Storytime is taking a holiday pause on December 27 and January 3. Please join us again Wednesday, January 10, for Storytime: Back to the Drawing Board.

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 10:30am. 

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 . 1-2 weeks advance notice is recommended but not required.

At this time, we cannot accommodate groups of 10 or larger at Storytime. Groups are encouraged to participate in Art Cart. Please contact in advance with your group information.

The Hirshhorn Kids email newsletter is crafted by educators who help kids get creative at their own pace by delivering the latest art opportunities in-person and online, including at-home projects and tips.
