What do we offer? 

Field Trips and Outreach

The Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys offers programming for everyone.  Our workshops strive to enrich, educate and entertain all while keeping with the Museum’s mission. We keep our prices affordable because we believe everyone should have a chance to experience the joy. 

Our workshops for adults and children are offered throughout the year and we are always coming up with new and exciting crafts. We offer both public and private workshops. Private workshops for groups are offered on site and through outreach for schools, day cares, scout troop, home school groups, summer camps and friends. 

One of our most popular workshops is our Family Workshop that takes place on the 3rd Saturday of each month.  These low cost workshops encourage parents and grandparents to interact with their children during the craft.  The most popular workshops include Fairies and Gnomes and recycled Robots. 

We are proud to offer field trips for school groups.  An outing to the DMMDT can get kids interested in history, geography, architecture, art, science and other cultures through the familiar medium of toys.  Our program goal is to help schools address the Colorado Model Content Standards including history, geography, science and art.  

We offer workshops for Boy and Girl Scout Troops.  Whether you are working on badges, try-its, journeys, or just looking for a fun field trip, Museum staff can find the right workshop for your troop.  Some of our most popular workshops include folk dolls, finger puppets, miniature rooms, and miniature gardens.
