Emmy Lou Thomson Big Red Barn

The Big Red Barn

Inspired by Margaret Wise Brown’s Big Red Barn, this gallery invites families to experience life on the farm. There are many farm chores to be done: milk the cow, fix the tractor, groom the pony, plant crops collect eggs, and sell the harvest at the farmer’s market—it’s all in a day’s work!

Looking for a reading nook? Head to the stable and check out our farm-inspired children’s books. For extra credit, join our early learning literacy-themed Toddler Tales program every Tuesday at 10:30 in the barn!

The Big Red Barn is home to the Toddler Tales program every Tuesday at 10:30 AM.
