Hang onto your hats, your birthday party hats that is! On Friday, March 11, Stepping Stones Museum for Children is bringing back a visitor favorite with a twist.

Visitors are invited to a Storybook Pajama Party on that day – which also happens to be the museum’s Sweet 16 birthday! Attendees can come and relax in their PJs and enjoy birthday party stories and activities. Most exciting of all, honored guest Clifford the Red Dog will be there for photo opportunities. The museum’s lovable mascot for literacy, Boo Zoo, will be there as well, posing for photos and enjoying the birthday vibes. Registration is required.

In addition, Stepping Stones Museum for Children would like to help the parents that have supported them. From 6:00 – 9:00 pm on Saturday, February 27, parents are encouraged to enjoy a relaxing night out knowing their children are in good hands at the museum. Even dinner is included! Registration is required for this as well.

Finally, Stepping Stones encourages both parents and children to check out Rainforest Adventure, a museum exhibit running through June 13. This multi-sensory expedition introduces visitors to tropical rainforests from around the globe, the challenges faced by these areas, and ways people can help to keep them from disappearing. Exhibit-goers can enjoy the following activities in Rainforest Adventure:

  • Climb a kapok tree that’s 9 feet tall
  • Meet scientists and explore ways they study rainforests
  • Become a research assistant through assignments, costumes, and props
  • Take a closer look at plant and material slides through an oversized microscope
  • Study plant and animal life in the different rainforest layers
  • Weave on a loom
  • Climb through a tree log to discover animals that live there
  • Explore a gorilla nest
  • Discover products that come from tropical rainforests
  • Visit children around the world and learn how their families help protect rainforests
  • Learn what can be done to help protect rainforests
