Bechtler Museum of Modern Art’s next Family Day is Saturday, May 7th, 2016, from 12 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free for kids and $8 for adults.
Besides the free and discounted admission, there will be free hands-on art activities throughout the museum for families to enjoy.
Family-friendly activities and games will be set up throughout the museum. Use dye sticks and block printing to create a brightly-colored textile design outside on the Bechtler plaza. Create your own chair in the style of Charles and Ray Eames using Crayola Model Magic in the lobby. Finally, help fellow guests weave a collaborative tapestry with an authentic loom and yarn in our fourth floor gallery. Guests will also be able to take home a small weaving from individual cardboard looms.
On Family Day, visit the museum store for a 10% discount on all children’s merchandise. Chose from an imaginative selection of activity kits, art books and contemporary toys.
