SYRACUSE, NY (January 20, 2015) – The Everson Museum of Art is pleased to announce an upcoming series of Baby & Me Tours to be held on February 19, March 11, April 8 and May 6 at 11.30am. Parents, caregivers and grandparents are all welcome to enjoy stimulating adult conversations with other art lovers while babies enjoy the exciting sights and sounds of the Museum. There are even opportunities for tactile learning, as docents often supply “can touch” items to engage tour participants. Each tour lasts approximately 30 minutes and will focus on the Everson’s upcoming temporary exhibitions, including Helen Levitt: In the Street.

Crying babies are welcome to join the conversation! Baby & Me Tours are held before the Museum opens to the public, so caregivers need not worry about disrupting other museum-goers if their little ones get loud. Curator of Education Kimberly Griffiths says, “We want to offer a valuable experience to the adults and babies alike – all in a comfortable, fun setting.”

Baby & Me Tours are free with museum admission. Please note: Only single strollers and front baby carriers are permitted in the galleries.
