Until Joslyn reopens in 2024, we are bringing art and inspiration to sites around town. Find us at a Joslyn Around Town event. 

Art Adventures Visits Storytime

Third Tuesday of the Month from September through December @ 10:30 am
Bring your young readers and artists to Omaha Public Library Benson Branch located at 6015 Binney St. for a free drop-in program combining former favorites, Art Adventures and Story Adventures. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Sessions include storytime presented by a librarian, complete with songs and creative movement, plus a hands-on art activity inspired by a Museum work. Art Adventures Visits Storytime is geared toward preschoolers, but all ages are welcome to participate in the fun! Come to one or all—or join us at another neighborhood branch next season.

Homeschool Families

While Joslyn Art Museum is temporarily closed for construction and renovation, reopening in 2024, we will continue to provide engaging visual art enrichment for all, including our homeschool family community.
