For Kids & Families

We offer a variety of programs for kids and families!  From Saturday Family Fun days to Retro Storytime, Kids' Night Out, art classes, storytellers, and musical performers.  Please check our calendar for upcoming events and visit jcprd.com to register!

Sensory Friendly Time

Our Sensory Friendly mornings provide an accepting atmosphere for our visitors who have sensory sensitivities. Experience the museum and KidScape with fewer visitors one Saturday a month from 9-10 am before the museum opens to the public. Visual schedules are available for you to print at home to help make your visit enjoyable and predictable.  Once families enter in the morning they are welcome to stay for the day. Siblings may attend. Standard admission prices apply.
