Art's Garden

Children are inspired to develop early literacy skills in this comfortable space with lots of books. Children and caregivers are encouraged to read together.

Children can prepare, cook and serve healthy meals in this colorful, child-size kitchen. Imaginative play promotes social-emotional and language development.

In the garden, children will learn about growing and harvesting their own fruits and vegetables that they will use to prepare meals for their caregivers in Art’s Kitchen.

Art's Studio

The Performing Arts Center

Wee Design

Children are able to participate in a stimulating art activity each day that will encourage creative expression, as well as the development of fine motor skills. Activities provide exposure to a variety of new and interesting art materials.

Children can interact and role play in an active, creative environment with changing themes. Children and adults can play instruments, develop rhythm and coordination by listening and interacting with music, and dress up in fun costumes to perform their own play on stage.

This activity area encourages children to build, create and design using a variety of materials such as blocks, Legos, gears, and more. Block play promotes the development of early math skills, problem solving and critical thinking.

Artful Tales every day at 11 a.m.

City Block Center

Vet Clinic

Artful Tales is a storytelling experience led by the Museum's professionally trained staff that takes place each day at 11 a.m. No pre-registration required; space available is first-come, first-served. Arrive early; free with paid admission.

This central spot in ArtVille provides an opportunity for children and their caregivers to work together to build with oversize, soft, colorful blocks. This space provides an opportunity for children to experience social interaction and learn cooperation and sharing.

In this imaginative play space, children can care for their furry friends just like a veterinarian. Children can look at animal x-rays, groom and feed life-sized stuffed animals, and even practice using a stethoscope.
