mfa playdates photoEven though they don't know the artists, toddlers who visit the MFA are just as enamored by the art as adults. There is so much to see and observe, so start them young!

Bring your toddler to enjoy story time and looking activities in the galleries, followed by art making. Tours leave on a rolling basis starting at 10:15 am. Recommended for children ages 4 and younger with adults. No registration required.
