Museum Moments Activity Cards, Powered by Vroom

Have fun and stimulate the growing brain of the child age five and under in your life with the Museum Moments activity cards. Look, talk, imagine, and learn together on your next adventure-filled visit to the Museum. You can view the cards on your phone, or print them out and bring them with you! Each includes easy-to-follow instructions on one side and an explanation of the learning concepts on the other.

A baby’s brain is wired to grow from birth. During a child’s earliest years, their brain makes one million neural connections every single second. With activities such as Mirror Mirror, Gallery Stroll, and Seeing with Your Ears, you have what it takes to be a brain-builder—while encouraging a love of art.
