We're Taking In-Museum Pictures this Month!
Collecting Images of Children Learning through Play

Thanks to two local photographers, Habitot will soon have a current collection of images to help spread our good work in pictures. On Friday, August 3, Aadhil Shiraz will be in the
museum taking candid photos - please let our Front Desk know if you do not want your child photographed. A digital file of the best photos will be available on request. On Sunday, August 12, when the museum is closed to the public, volunteers are needed for Joseph Lim of Two Trees Photography to take composed shots of parents and children together. We are looking for diverse families with children of different ages to participate. Please call or email Lillianna at 510-647-1111 x 31 or to inquire about participating.  Those selected will receive a free Family Guest Pass and your preference of any item from our Gift Store!
