Learn, play, explore, and grow during El Museo’s monthly bilingual program for our tiniest visitors. Join us on the first Saturday and Wednesday of every month as we embark on an adventure to discover new ways of interacting with art and each other. With time for play, storytelling, museum walk and art making, Coquí Club provides a fun and active way to explore El Museo and enjoy creative themes together. Program length: 60 minutes (2 sessions)
This month our tiny visitors will explore the 3,000 year old Mexican tradition that is Día de Muertos. Together we will read Mi Familia Calaca/My Skeleton Family by Cynthia Weill and Jesus de Oaxaco. Afterwards, we will look at the altares specifically created for El Museo del Barrio by invited artists, before making our own ofrendas (offerings). Families are encouraged to return with their ofrendas and join our annual Day of the Dead celebration on Saturday, October 19.
Recommended for children ages 1-4 and their caregivers. Dress for a mess!
There are two sessions of the program, starting at 9:30 and 11:00 am. Free tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis before each session on the day of the program in the museum lobby. We recommend arriving a few minutes before each session to sign up, as space is limited and the program often fills up. All participants must be present to receive a ticket.
