Taft Jr.

Taft Jr. welcomes visitors 3 to 5 years old, along with their caregivers, on the first Thursday of each month from September through May. Taft Jr. allows preschoolers to have fun learning about and making art with their favorite adults while absorbing good museum manners. Each program will feature a story time, a close-up encounter with a piece of art, and a craft.

Free for Taft members; regular admission pricing for non-member; children free.
