Toledo Museum of Art Announces Baby Tours

Museums across the country are beginning to offer tours to the youngest members of their audience, and the Toledo Museum of Art is leading the way. In the past year the Museum began offering monthly baby tours designed by one of the world’s foremost experts on how babies’ visual experiences can fuel learning and cognitive development.

The innovative tours for 2-to-18-month-olds are the brainchild of Dr. Kathy Danko-McGhee, director of education at the Toledo Museum of Art. Dr. Danko-McGhee’s groundbreaking research centers on how infants and toddlers respond to art and the impact of early art experiences on literacy and critical thinking skills.

For general information, visitors can call 419-255-8000 or 800-644-6862, or visit www.toledomuseum.org.
