Fun for the young at Crocker

By From page B4 | July 25, 2012

Back by popular demand, families with young children will have a yee-haw time at the Crocker Art Museum celebrating Sacramento’s annual Gold Rush Days on Labor Day Monday, Sept. 3, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The West will be wild with wiggles and giggles during this event featuring live performances by children’s ballet folklorico group Nube de Oro and family bluegrass band Oak Grove. Attendees can also experience Native American craft-making demos, hands-on art-making, and even visit a petting zoo.

The museum will be open free of charge on Labor Day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free admission and activities are sponsored by Target.

Little ones from infancy to 5 years of age and their caregivers can also enjoy spending time in Tot Land, a gallery devoted entirely to families located in the museum’s education center.

Tot Land features the Webby-nominated Living Art Wall, an interactive touch screen for unparalleled creative play, as well as spaces for art making and reading.

For more information visit or call 916-808-7000.

The Crocker is located at 216 O St. in downtown Sacramento. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday; 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Thursdays. Every third Sunday of the month is “Pay What You Wish Sunday” sponsored by Western Health Advantage.
