Family Learning


Family Days are designed to help kids and grown-ups explore the Museum’s exhibits together. They feature hands-on gallery activities and art-making for the whole family. Family Days happen on selected Saturdays from 10 AM until Noon and they are FREE, no registration required. Join us for Family Giftmaking on Saturday, November 24. Family members of all ages can make simple gifts like bookmarks, cards and ornaments.  Please bring a box so you can transport your creations home!

Located in the Museum's Education Wing, the Family Art Lab and Book Nook are interactive spaces where children can explore art on their own terms—by touching, building and pretending. Full of blocks, magnatiles, books, art games and more, the Family Art Lab can provide a break during a Museum visit or be a destination in itself. The Book Nook is a quiet space where kids can peruse our fantastic collection of children’s art books. We invite families to be creative together in these spaces designed just for them!
