Sibshop at Building for Kids @ Building for Kids
Nov 14 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Building for KidsIn collaboration with the Building for Kids Children’s Museum in downtown Appleton, WisconSibs is offering a unique and safe in-person Sibshop opportunity.

Join us for an Exhibit Exploration Session for the whole household with a pull-out Sibshop for sibs!

With this very special Exhibit Exploration event, households with a child with disabilities and their siblings will be able to register for 90 minutes of exclusive access to one of four exhibit groupings in the museum, meaning they will be the only ones playing on those exhibits.

Not only that, but the Sibs in each household may attend a fun, socially-distant Sibshop session in the large classroom while parents and child(ren) with disabilities continue their exploration in their Exhibit area.

FREE admission for eligible families (have a child with disabilities and at least one sibling of that child ages 6-12). Register at the Building for Kids.

November 14, 2020  10:30-Noon
– Choose your exhibit during registration. Options include:
