Outside on the grounds of the Durant-Kenrick House we will read Apples by Gail Gibbons to discover more about the history of apples in America, and use the fruit itself to make art.

The Kenrick family had many acres of fruit orchards when they lived in Newton and their growing legacy is still present in our orchard and gardens.

Our free, bi-weekly Storytime program engages kids 18 months to 6 years old by focusing on play, Newton's history, literacy, and lessons from our museums.

Each 30-45 minute program includes reading from a children's book, an activity, a museum takeaway, and access to the museum afterward.

Families are welcome to bring snacks for their kids.

Includes free entrance to the museums after the program.
Location: Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds, 286 Waverley Ave., Newton, MA 02458
