Pre K Programs

Open Build Fridays

Open Build Fridays at The Works Museum are designed with your youngest engineers in mind. Perfect for ages 3-5, these open-ended activities feature different building toys and materials each week, all in a big kid free part of the Museum.

Fridays, June 22 – August 10 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Included with Museum admission ($8.50 per person).

Pre K Mondays

(Offered during the school year, October through May)

Our Pre K Mondays feature special activities just for kids ages 3 to 5 and their adult companions. Kids are natural engineers – experience the amazing fun of hands-on engineering together! Encourage your Pre K student to explore his or her curiosity and design, build, and create.

What to expect:

  • Half price admission ($4.25) for kids from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Grown-up admission is $8.50.

  • A special activity designed just for our youngest engineers, which will be held in a “big kid free” location of the Museum.

  • Access to the Museum’s activity floor is included with your activity admission fee.

Please note – Field trip groups may be on the experience floor during Pre K Mondays. We’ll post on this page if “big kid” groups (over grade 2) are scheduled. The Pre K program will always take place in a “big kid free” location.
