Storytelling programs at the Missouri History Museum engage our youngest visitors and their families with songs, movement, traditional and contemporary storybooks, and local history. Each story time connects with a different theme that helps children explore their world and develop a love of reading. All story times are led by a dedicated educator who makes the activity interactive, and we take special care to choose books that present a variety of experiences and people our young guests can see themselves in. Storytelling in the Museum supports early literacy and is a great opportunity for age-appropriate social emotional learning.
These programs are recommended for children ages 2–6 and their families, and each 30-minute session is free. Storytelling in the Museum takes place in person on Fridays from 10:30 to 11:00am, and our bilingual Spanish-English storytelling Cuentos en el Museo occurs second Saturdays and the fourth Friday of each month.
