Classes & Workshops

  • Providing A Fun Learning Environment

    Pretend City Children’s Museum strives to provide classes and workshops that are diverse, educational, and developmentally appropriate for the young children in our community and their families. All of our classes are taught by experts in their field that have a heart and passion for the education of young hearts and minds. In the past we have offered classes in music, cooking, healthy eating, kid’s yoga, mindfulness, dancing, language, parenting strategies, and science.

    Please check back periodically for our current class schedule and pricing. Advanced registration is recommended since many of our classes tend to fill up fast. Most classes do not require museum admission to participate so they are open to the general public. We know that you will find a class or workshop that you and your child will love here at Pretend City!
