Children's Programs


There are many ways for children to enjoy the Museum and take part in the fun! From group trips to daily activities, there is always something for our youngest visitors to engage in.



Stop by our education center in the Library and Archives for activities and worksheets for families and children of all ages to enjoy! Show your creativity with our Breed of the Month craft and learn about different breeds of furry friends! From coloring pages to ceramic dog models, there is much inspiration to be drawn from in the Library!


A new version of Paws to Read is coming soon! Check back for updates on this exciting program. For now, check out our video library. There you can find previous readings.

Stuffy storytime

Calling all storybook lovers and their stuffie friends!

Join us for a storytime program on Wednesday mornings before opening at the Museum of the Dog. Bring your favorite stuffed dog along for a fun adventure listening to a dog themed story, singing songs, learning about different dog breeds, and completing a dog related art activity.

This program is included with general admission and free for members. We welcome all who are interested to attend but the program is designed for 2-5 year olds and an adult learning partner.
