Engaging very young children in art museums can be challenging, and families and institutions alike may struggle with or shy away from such experiences. This poster presents a program designed to provide meaningful and positive experiences for babies (6-18 months) and caregivers in art museums, and an example of its successful implementation at Dulwich Picture Gallery in London, U.K. Through compelling images and testimonials, this poster explains how the program was tailored for a gallery and its specific needs, responding also to broader contextual questions around early childhood explorations of art and education programs in museums.
