A Very Special Storytime—The Museum

A Very Special Storytime

When you see a work of art, does something happen in your heart? Join author Susan Verde and illustrator Peter H. Reynolds for an exciting artistic adventure as they introduce young visitors to their new book, The Museum. Then discover inspiration for your own creations and bring the story to life as you explore the Met's galleries on a guided family tour!

The Museum will be available for purchase in the Uris Center Met Store. Verde and Reynolds will be signing books after the presentation.

To register, please use the online registration form.

Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. All are welcome; best for ages 3 and up. Direct any questions to nolen.library@metmuseum.org.

This event is made possible by the Friends of Watson Library at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
