Relax with your little one while they explore their curiosities in our playful, desert-inspired oasis.
We are working on a totally new early learners’ space to replace the Center for the Young Child! The plan is to open the new exhibit, Bloom, in early 2023, but stay tuned for updates. Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy the Early Learners’ Oasis.
Who’s that? It’s you! Explore the wonder of reflections and watch your little one begin to notice facial recognition in our mountain inspired mirror landscape.
Leap outside the box of ordinary block stacking! Enjoy our handmade, uniquely shaped blocks to practice taking turns and developing fine motor skills while exploring spatial awareness and balance.
Inspire your senses by investigating how different materials interact with light and shadow!
Don’t forget to look up! Let your gaze wander through our unique, cloud-inspired mobiles made up of light, varied shapes and textures. Designed by our in-house exhibits department!
Plop down in a comfy chair and take in a story.
The Early Learner's Oasis isn't the only place where you can enjoy play, learning and growth with your little one. From Joy Park to The Teaching Kitchen and so much more, the Museum is designed with your family in mind! Learn more.
We wanted to help other non-profit organizations craft world-class learning experiences, so we created The Exhibits Team. Our exhibit experts can provide advice on the many decisions involved with designing, fabricating, installing and maintaining museum exhibits.
