Single Day Camps are available for children age 5–7 years throughout the school year. Each day has a specific focus to guide the art explorations and activities in addition to lots of time in the Museum exhibits. 

Our newest exhibit, DreamScape, welcomes families to ask ‘what do dreams look, feel, and sound like’ as they explore and tinker with new and recycled materials. Children and adults alike will delight in recognizing everyday objects repurposed to evoke and reimagine dreaming.

We love seeing our guests of all ages exploring, playing, and asking simple, but powerful, questions about dreaming. What do dreams look like, sound like, and feel like?  What dreams do they have for the future and what happens when dreams fit together? Come play with us and share your adventure with #pdxdreamscape!

Our guest in the market spent her time playing and collecting only food that was red or green, in doing so she demonstrated a powerful natural learning strategy at work: seeking patterns and connections.

In our Early Explorers class the other day, a child was reluctant to paint his own face. You can see here what he did instead to satisfy his curiosity about what might happen if he did. Instead of looking in a mirror with a painted face, he painted his mirror image!
