Play Dates

Play Dates are designed so parents and little ones, ages 0-5 years old, can explore the Museum of the Southwest in a safe, encouraging and fun learning environment.  Sessions include hands-on activities that help children achieve fine and gross motor skill milestones while teaching parents how to engage their children in a museum environment. 

Sessions take place inside the Turner Memorial Art Museum.  Advance registration for the semester is required. 

Our Summer Semester will be on Tuesdays to accommodate our Family Friday activities that will be taking place on Fridays.  The Fall Semester will return to Fridays.

When you register, you will be signing up for all three Summer Semester classes.
