Fullerton, Ca – Parents looking for new adventures to share with their young children are invited to join "The Stroller Brigade" every Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to noon through December 18, 2013 at the Fullerton Museum Center.

The Museum Center welcomes parents – and grandparents who baby-sit – to visit the museum Wednesdays morning to view the newest exhibit, “The Art of Seating,” and take part in special activities specifically designed for the “stroller crowd.”

Families with young children as well as babysitters and day-care providers have the museum all to themselves, free of charge with programs and themes changing every week.

 “The Art of Seating” provides audiences with a unique opportunity to see chair types that usually reside in private homes, withheld from public display. The American Chair Collection, the center of this exhibition, is an amazing and comprehensive private collection of iconic and historic chairs reaching back from the mid-1800s to pieces from today's studio movement. The exhibition provides an opportunity to see readily recognizable pieces alongside those rarely seen by the public.

No reservations are needed to participate in the Stroller Brigade, but large groups (more than 15) are asked to notify the Museum Education Office at (714) 738-3136 prior to coming to the museum.

The Fullerton Museum Center is located at 301 N. Pomona Ave., east of Harbor Blvd., in downtown Fullerton. Hours are noon-4 p.m. Tuesday-Wednesday and Friday-Sunday, and noon – 8 p.m. Thursday.  Further information about “Stroller Brigade” may be obtained by calling the Fullerton Museum Center at (714) 738-6545.

Persons requiring special accommodations to view the exhibit are asked to notify the museum staff prior to coming to the Fullerton Museum Center.
