FREE ARTS! FAMILY DAY

Enjoy free admission from noon to 4 pm on the third Sunday of every month! Each monthly Free Arts! Family Days explores a new theme through a S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art and math) lens, giving families time to interact and create something inspired by that month’s topic. All activities are designed to be accessible for young visitors while also engaging the young at heart. Free Arts! Family Days use each monthly focus to encourage creativity and collaboration among families and friends.

 

We hope to see you there!
