Tuesday Toddler Time!
CMOP offers facilitated toddler programming every Tuesday morning from 10am-11am. This time is set aside to nurture a love of learning in our smallest visitors.

Acting Up is a pop-up program that CMOP is offering on select Wednesdays at 10:30am to introduce children to the wondrous world of the performing arts! As players, children can assume the roles of others, learn to work cooperatively, and gain confidence…all while having fun! Acting Up is included in regular ticket admission. Members of the Museum are free.
10am & 3:30pm
Join us in the Artsy Smartsy room as we nurture your child’s creativity through a range of stimulating activities!

LEGO DONATIONS: CMOP would love to continue to build this program for children! Please consider donating Legos to help our cause.
Sensory Friendly Morning
CMOP recognizes the increasing need for families with children with developmental disabilities to have an accessible and enjoyable place to learn and play with relief from extra stimuli. To help meet this need, CMOP will offer a Sensory Friendly Morning at the Museum on the second Wednesday of each month from 9:00am-12:00pm. Children can experience the Museum with dimmed lights, reduced ambient noise, a less crowded environment, and they will be able to retreat into a designated quiet room if needed. CMOP’s goal is for children with sensory processing difficulties to feel welcome and have a positive experience while they explore the Museum.
Please note: Field trips and parties will not be scheduled on this day to limit admission into the Museum.
