Due to our temporary closure, we are only offering off-site programming at this time. No field trips, craft workshops at the museum or birthday parties will be available for the time being. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
If you are interested in programming but do not have a site in mind to host it, email firstname.lastname@example.org - we know of plenty of free and low-cost options that could work for you.
The Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys offers programming for everyone. Our workshops strive to enrich, educate and entertain all while keeping with the Museum’s mission. We keep our prices affordable because we believe everyone should have a chance to experience the joy.
Our workshops for adults and children are offered throughout the year and we are always coming up with new and exciting crafts. We offer both public and private workshops. Private workshops for groups are offered for schools, day cares, scout troop, home school groups, summer camps and friends.
We are proud to offer outreach programming for school groups. A visit from the DMMDT can get kids interested in history, geography, architecture, art, science and other cultures through the familiar medium of toys. Our program goal is to help schools address the Colorado Model Content Standards including history, geography, science and art.
We offer workshops for Boy and Girl Scout Troops. Whether you are working on badges, try-its, journeys, or just looking for a fun activity, Museum staff can find the right workshop for your troop. Some of our most popular workshops include folk dolls, finger puppets, miniature rooms, and miniature gardens.
Our entertaining lectures and talks are intended for a teen and adult audience and use toys, dolls and miniatures as a way to history, social sciences and more. Some topics we cover are
- History of the 20th Century Through Toys
- Barbie at 50
- The Miniaturist in the Dutch Golden Age
- Why Dolls Can Give Us the Creeps
- The Devil and DnD: Moral Panics in Gaming
For groups of people with disabilities and/or who are living with memory impairments, we strive to be inclusive and flexible to anyone and everyone. We have specialized tactile programming for people to explore the toys of the past. Our educators are trained in and keep current on best practices for inclusive programming for people of all ages. We're always happy to make modifications to our craft workshops to accommodate any needs.
