Programs for Kids @ Joslyn

We aim for kid-friendly!
Besides special programs and events, Joslyn provides children and families with tools to engage in independent art exploration and hands-on learning. When you're at the Museum, visit Art Works: A Place for Curiosity to enjoy nine hands-on activity stations with connections to art in the galleries, or stop by the Scott EdTech Gallery to pick-up a printed gallery guide, check-out an Art Pack, explore art using an iPad, and more!

Storytelling Concert
Sunday, June 24 @ 2 pm

Join us in the Abbott Lecture Hall for tales from around the world presented by Antonio Rocha, a native of Brazil who has performed his unique fusion of mime and spoken word throughout the United States and across six continents. With his tenor voice, realistic sound effects, and mesmerizing moves, Antonio is sure to tickle your funny bone and delight your soul. Don't miss it!

At the door: $5 Joslyn members, Nebraska StoryArts members, students; $7 general public adults.



Stroller Tours

Joslyn offers docent-guided tours designed for moms, dads, and caregivers to look at and talk about art with other adults, while being mindful of young ones in arms and strollers. Gather in Joslyn's Conagra Brands Atrium on Wednesdays at 9:30 am for complimentary pastries and refreshments. Then head to the galleries for 10 am tours that will keep you up-to-date on Joslyn's permanent collection and exciting special exhibitions. Tandem strollers and crying babies welcome!
