Who We Are: Hands On: Family Friendly is A Mariposa Policy
Yes, Hands On! Our costumes are meant to be worn, puppets to be animated, instruments to be played. The few exceptions are marked by signs. Simply, anything at child level is intended to be handled, gently and with respect.
We ask all to help us treat the collection gently, play the instruments softly, hang the clothing back up neatly, untangle puppets if you have tangled them, and keep strikers beside their instrument. Please notify us of any accidental mishaps. We trust our guardian angels — with a lot of help from our friends — to enjoy and learn from our collection while keeping it safe.
See the Events Calendar for all entries and latest information or call (603) 924-4555.
When children are raised with respect and curiosity towards
other cultures, the world will know more peace and less war.
