- Get Involved
Build excitement by talking or reading a bedtime story about dinosaurs, planets, and other things your children will see.
Explore any exhibition or gallery that catches your children's fancy, even if unplanned. Spend no more than an hour in any one museum with preschoolers.
Plan ahead with Awesome Adventures at the Smithsonian: The Official Kids Guide to the Smithsonian Institution—an interactive guidebook just for kids with material that can be enjoyed at home and in the museums.
