While the Museum is closed due to the public health emergency, we are bringing you the Small Explorers program online! New videos are posted on Saturdays; follow us on Facebook (njstatemuseum) or check back here.
The Small Explorers Series is for children 6 months to 5 years old with their caregivers. Each month we explore a different theme through stories, crafts, and play. The program is 45 minutes long and begins promptly. It’s held the third weekend of each month, on Friday at 2:00 pm, and Saturday at 10:00 am & 12:00 noon in the Discovery Den. The program is FREE, but space is limited; advance registration is required. For more information or to register contact Kerry.Scott@sos.nj.gov. NOTE: Registration requests must be received by 10:00 am the Friday before the event in order to allow time for staff to confirm space availability.
