(psst...we have lots to share, you won't want to skip this!)

We've been CHALLENGED by ArtsWestchester
to raise $5,000 before time runs out!

ArtsWestchester will donate up to $5,000 to the Westchester Children's Museum if we can match that amount in donations before December 14! The Museum needs your donation today! There are limited funds available and nearly 50 nonprofits competing for these same funds. Every gift (new or above your highest donation over the past two years) helps. Please consider making a contribution today. Thank you so much!

The Museum offers a wide range of activities for all ages that inspire creativity and offer opportunities for critical thinking. Every gift helps enhance and increase our programming. Please consider a donation

LET’S FLY!    

Our weekly programs for children age 2-5 will focus on flight.

Every Wednesday – Young Discoverers – 11am
Children will learn all about airplanes and being a pilot.  Each child will have a turn at the “controls” as we arrange our chairs in rows and pretend to be on a plane. Movement, song, and storytime. Everyone will make their own airplane and test it for stability and speed. 

Every Friday – Exploring Play  - 11am
Children will name all things (living and non-living) that fly.  Program includes storytime, "flying" movement game, singing a flight song, and making our own airplane picture to take home- puffy clouds and all!

All programs are included with admission. Caregivers must be present.
