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. Toddler Time is included with regular admission. Toddler Time programs rotate throughout the month between art, sensory, and story time activities.
10am & 3:30pm
Join us in the Young At Art Room as we nurture your child’s creativity through a range of stimulating activities! Children will build confidence, gain vocabulary, and fine-tune those gross and fine motor skills all while having loads of fun exploring art-making techniques! Geared towards children 4 and up.
11am & 4pm
Random Acts of Science
Random Acts of Science is held on Fridays at 11am and 4pm. During this time, Children can explore a variety of engaging science topics with cool experiments and thoughtful inquiry.

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.
The SD Gunner Fund partners with the Museum in coordinating service dogs to visit the children during SFM days.
Please note: Field trips and special events will not be scheduled on this day to limit admission into the Museum.
Homeschool Hour at the Museum
