Interactive Tour

Are you in need of mental stimulation and adult conversation? Pack up the stroller and join us for a tour designed to introduce parents (with babies in tow) to a variety of artworks at the Carter. This free tour is most appropriate for parents with pre-toddlers, and refreshments are provided after the program. The tour begins at the Information Desk. Reservations are not required, but we recommend that parents call 817.989.5030 to receive helpful instructions and parking information.

Free parking is available in the museum’s lot, which is east of the museum off Camp Bowie Boulevard. Parents are encouraged to park in this lot and follow the sidewalk along the north side of the museum, where an accessible lift is available for your stroller. A museum representative will be there to assist you. Please note: the parking lots and garages in the Will Rogers Memorial Center complex will become paid parking beginning May 1, 2010.


what about pre-schoolers? not so good should they find something more hands on to do?

This program is best for children in strollers. We do have parents bring multiple children (maybe one or two in a stroller and one on foot) on occasion. We believe you are never too young to enjoy the museum!

If you feel your child would enjoy a more active family program, please see below.

If you have children out of the stroller, bring them to Storytime at the Carter every Wednesday June 9-July 28 at 10:30 a.m. We offer exciting stories that relate to works of art in the galleries followed by refreshments and an art activity! It is lots of fun with great interactive, hands-on activities for preschoolers and beyond.

We also have Family Funday coming up on Sunday, August 8 from 1 to 4 p.m. It is a great event for the whole family with art activities, entertainment, refreshments, and great activities to connect with works of art in our collection. See more information on our calendar listing.

If you prefer to come in on your own time, you and your preschooler can always pick up a Postcard Tour at the front desk for a self-guided fun experience!
See you at the museum!
