Preschool Programs

Preschool programs at America’s Car Museum encourage your child’s curiosity and imagination. Geared to ages 3-5, this program includes the following three activities:

Storytime & Art – 30 minutes

A museum educator will read a book such as If I Built a Car by Chris Van Dusen and then encourage students to use a variety of materials to illustrate what it would look like if they built a car.

Family Zone Playtime – 30 minutes

This is a space where kids of all ages can play and engage with hands-on activities that include racing a pinewood derby car down a track, “driving” a 1920s Dodge and taking a toy car on a road trip across an oversized map of the United States.

Guided Tour OR Self-Guided Exploration

GUIDED TOUR – 30 MINUTES

This condensed tour will cover approximately ¼ of the Museum’s galleries. A museum educator will encourage children to identify design features of various shapes and colors as well as compare and contrast old and new cars.

SELF-GUIDED EXPLORATION – 30-60 MINUTES

Small groups of children with an assigned adult will explore the Museum at their own pace using an age-appropriate scavenger hunt as their guide.

Program themes may also be customized to meet your group’s learning objectives.
