Enriching Early Childhood Tours


Discover how educators at the Nerman Museum engage young visitors and preK-3 students with innovative art appreciation activities, incorporating hands-on items, picture books, and movement, to teach visual literacy. With pedagogy from the Smithsonian’s Early Enrichment Center, our docents connect multisensory teaching techniques with our critically acclaimed outdoor sculpture collection and temporary exhibitions. Join us for a walking tour of the museum galleries and Oppenheimer Sculpture Park.

 Bus transportation is provided to and from the hotel.
