Penny's Storytime at the Hoboken Museum

Designed for children ages 2 -5 years old, our weekly Penny's Storytime presents stories and songs about city life, read by Education Curator Maria Lara and other special guests on Thursdays at 10:00 am and 11 am.  This registration form is for the 11 am session. Please return to the Museum's home page if you wish to register for 10 am. 

All are invited, but due to space constraints, reservations are required, and strollers must be parked outside. Sponsored in part by Macy's. Suggested donation of $3 is appreciated.

Please note: Registration will open at 10 am on the Wednesday before each Thursday session. There are a limited number of seats available, and children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Thanks for understanding!

Tips and Guidelines for making Storytime successful:

  1. Reserve your space by registering online, and bring a printed registration form to help us expedite check-in.
  2. Doors to the Museum will open at 10:45 a.m.
  3. There is only one "late admittance" window during the songs after the first book.
  4. The museum is not childproof, so if you see your child trying to touch the cabinets or museum displays, please gently lead them back to the group.
  5. If your child is crying or having a difficult time, please take him or her outside so as not to disturb the others and try to come back another time.
  6. If your child is not being gentle with another child, please separate the children and make sure it doesn’t happen again. 
  7. Cell phones are fine for taking pictures of your child, but not for talking on or texting.
  8. All the adults in the room are role models for the children. If they see you sitting and listening to the story, they will too. If they see you talking or texting, they won’t. 
  9. Please enjoy your food after Storytime, not during, and take any cups or wrappers with you.

Thank you for your cooperation!
