V.I.B Hour! (Very Important Babies)
Each Wednesday morning at 9 am, the Zimmer opens its doors exclusively to the under 2 crowd!
Tiny tykes and their caregivers can enjoy the museum in a more relaxed setting giving both kids and adults more room to breathe (and crawl and climb). Looking for more guided exploration time? Check out our VIB classes offered during this time. Click HERE for more info and to register.
As this hour’s intention is to create a safe, comfortable play space for our youngest visitors, we ask families with older siblings to instead join for regular museum hours at 10am.
General admission rates apply.
Members Only Hour
On Fridays from 9am-10am, the museum opens exclusively for Zimmer members.
We also offer a new Parent Social Happy Hour during this time every 4th Friday!
Open Door Days
While all children and families are always welcome at the Zimmer, the museum will open on special days exclusively for families with children with special needs.
At the Zimmer, we are committed to making quality play and learning experiences available to all children. While the Zimmer works diligently to provide inclusive programs every day, our Open Door Days combine special considerations regarding cost and ‘busy-ness’ of the museum with an understanding community. Our hope is that visiting the museum is enjoyable for all families, and Open Door Days serves as another option so that all families in the city may play and learn together at the Zimmer.
For the comfort of the families attending, we limit our capacity.
Admission is FREE, and reservations are encouraged. Please call Farzaneh Neman at
