CAN I BRING MY GROUP TO THE PROGRAM?
Design Tales and Design Kids are intended for families. We are unable to accommodate groups.
CAN I LEAVE MY CHILD?
Caretakers must stay with their child for the duration of the program.
HOW DO I REGISTER FOR A PROGRAM?
Our July and August programming is first come, first serve. You cannot reserve a ticket online. We recommend arriving to the event location ten minutes before scheduled programming to ensure a spot. If the program is full when you arrive, we invite you to join a later session.
WHERE CAN I PUT MY STROLLER?
If you are participating in a Design Tales program in the garden, we encourage you to park your stroller near the activity but we do not have a designated stroller parking location and are not responsible for your unattended belongings. Stroller parking at the main entrance is first come, first serve and is limited. If you are participating in a Design Tales gallery program, you may be asked to bring your stroller in the gallery spaces.
WHEN IS A PROGRAM CANCELLED?
If there is inclement weather, Monday garden programming will be cancelled.
WHAT IF I’M RUNNING LATE?
We cannot accommodate participants that arrive late. If you anticipate a late arrival, we encourage you to join a later session.
Design Tales programming alternates between the garden and galleries. Please check the event location carefully at coooperhewitt.org.
