Come Jam With US! Announcing Music Storytime at the NMM!

Jam with us at the National Music Museum!

The National Music Museum is excited to announce the addition of Music Storytime to our events schedule! Beginning on Saturday, June 1, join us at 10:30 a.m. on the first Saturday of each month in the lobby of the National Music Museum in Vermillion for an enchanting journey through the world of music -  tailored especially for children ages 3 to 6. In each interactive session, little ones will embark on a magical adventure filled with musical discovery, rhythmic tales, and toe-tapping tunes.


NMM's Music Storytime is a delightful fusion of storytelling and music, designed to captivate young hearts and minds. Through a carefully curated selection of stories and songs, children will not only be entertained but also encouraged to explore the power of music as a means of expression and creativity.


Led by Anna Van Kley, NMM's Museum Educator, each session promises a unique and engaging experience where children will develop a deeper appreciation for music, enhance their listening skills, and foster a love for storytelling. So, come join us as we embark on a harmonious journey where stories come to life through the magic of music!

These events, which are free for children ages 3-6, are made possible through the generous support of the M. A. Martin Everist Foundation. Stayed tuned for individual event listings to be added to our Events Page!

Anna Van Kley, NMM Museum Educator, will introduce kids to instruments from the NMM collections, teach basic rhythm and movement sequences and lead them through a musical story!
