Gateway Storytime in the Discovery Room

September 18, 2017 - June 18, 2018

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 single-file line outside the 81st Street Planetarium Entrance between 9:45 and 10:15 on a first-come, first-served basis for sessions at 10:15 and 11:15. Line forms on the east side of the plaza and is indicated by a sign in the doorway. If the line gets long, please curve up the sidewalk towards Central Park West. Any remaining tickets will be distributed from the Discovery Room itself. Please note this change from years past.

All visitors must also have general admission tickets to enter the building.
