Toddler Time is a program for children ages two to four and takes place monthly from September through April. Each month, programs are themed around an animal and incorporate a craft, story and a trip to one of the River Museum’s many exhibits.

Toddler Time is offered the first Tuesday of each month at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., as well as the following Saturday of the same week at 10:30 a.m. The program costs $10 for non-members and $8 for members which includes one child and one parent or caregiver. Participants can enjoy the Mississippi River Discovery Center building following their scheduled program. Registration is required.
