Free Friday story time at BYU Museum of Peoples, Cultures

The Museum of Peoples and Cultures at Brigham Young University is now featuring a story time for toddlers and preschoolers every Friday at 11 a.m. during the school year.

The program is free with new stories and a new culture each week. The museum is located on 700 North 100 East in Provo. 

Each week, folktales will help children to explore elements – like music, clothing and families – that cultures throughout the globe share.

“I love doing [stories] because it's a chance to help kids discover things about very different cultures,” said Amy Warner, a story reader and volunteer at the museum. 

The program is designed to promote learning and awareness of the great diversity of the world.  At the Museum of Peoples and Cultures, storytellers read books and lead discussions with the children to enhance learning, followed by an activity that goes along with the tales.

Children will hear the stories as they sit surrounded by artifacts that are held in the museum’s galleries.
