For Families

Family Day on Sunday, April 5, is cancelled

With an abundance of caution, we are cancelling the art-making activities of our monthly Family Day on Sunday, April 5. We are still open, and admission will be free for parents with their children. However, we will not be providing the normal art activities in the upstairs gallery.

The museum is taking precautions to ensure a safe environment, including increased janitorial services and surface disinfection. Fortunately, art may be enjoyed by looking, not touching!

Our next Family Day is Sunday, May 3, 11am - 4pm

Choose from several hands-on art projects taught by professional teachers. Our family-friendly art teachers can customize the art project so that you and every child in your family can take home a personalized creation. Art supplies are included..

Our Family docents are here to help. They will greet you and hand out our “Art Investigator” guide for kids so that your trip through the galleries is fun and educational.

Admission is free when you bring a child, 2 – 12 years.

Planning your visit is easy.

  • View our map to navigate to our campus.  Free parking is available across the street.  Or take SMART to the Hamilton station, and enjoy a 4-minute walk down the hill to the museum.
