Grandparent Circle: A new group just for Grandparents at the Museum!

As you likely know, this Museum is not only a great place for children to visit with their parents and babysitters, but also with the most special of relatives, grandparents. We always see grandparents at the museum with their grandchildren and have been working for sometime on ways to connect with them more deeply. It’s clear to us that the relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is very special and we want to acknowledge the importance of this bond here at the Museum.

A few months ago, the Museum's founding Executive Director, who is now a grandparent herself, approached us with the idea to form a group to give grandparents special opportunities to spend time with their grandchildren here, a place where they adore watching them play, learn and grow. We, of course, loved the idea and – ta da ! – launched Grandparent Circle, a Museum donor and membership group designed just for grandparents.

Through their generous donation (Grandparent Circle memberships begin at $500) Grandparent Circle members contribute to the strength and vitality of our hands-on exhibits, educational and community outreach programs, as well as our ability to develop creativity in all Bay Area children, nurturing future generations of creative thinkers and innovators.

To celebrate the kick-off of Grandparent Circle we are inviting all grandparents to bring their grand-kids to our first ever Pajama Party Sing-Along featuring Museum faves Miss Kitty and Tim Cain! Space is limited; please RSVP by Wednesday June 2 to:

Amy Regan
