Family and Childrens Programs

Gateway Storytime in the Discovery Room

October 30, 2017 - June 18, 2018

A large group of young children sits on the floor and watches an adult show pictures and read aloud from a book.

On Monday mornings during the school year, children 2 to 5 years of age are invited to join us for a story hour.

Space is limited and tickets are distributed on a designated line outside the 81st Street Planetarium Entrance between 9:45 am and 10:15 am on a first-come, first-served basis for sessions occurring at 10:15 am and 11:15 am.

Any remaining tickets will be distributed from the Discovery Room itself. 

All visitors must have general admission tickets to obtain Gateway Storytime passes.


Offered most Monday mornings during the school year, starting after Labor Day. Programs do not run on public school holidays.
