The Carlos Museum will close to visitors until further notice beginning on Monday, March 16. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and in response to the rapidly evolving information regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). We will continue to provide updates here as the situation evolves, and we look forward to connecting with our community on Facebook and Instagram and through our e-newsletter. 

Artful Stories for Preschools

Preschool children visit the Carlos galleries to hear children’s literature related to the collections and exhibitions, look closely at a single work of art together, then head to the studio for an engaging hands-on activity.

This free program is available for preschool classes on Monday mornings at 10 AM when the museum is closed to the general public, offering a special environment for young children to experience art, literacy, and cultures from around the globe. Every child receives a copy of the book to take home.

  • There is a maximum of 22 children per group.
  • One chaperone is required for every five children.
  • If your group has special needs, please call to discuss possible adjustments to the program.
  • Space is limited, so please sign up early to reserve a space for your class.
