Bechtler Museum Family Day

"Go beyond crayons at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art’s Family Day November 6. The event will provide hands-on art activities for kids of all ages and specially designed museum tours for families. Art projects take place from noon to 4:30 p.m. in the museum’s classroom and video gallery, both located on the second floor. Most art activities illustrate techniques and styles used by artists in the museum’s current exhibition, School of Paris: European Abstraction Post World War II.
Tours of the museum for families will be offered on the hour between noon and 3 p.m. and special tours just for kids will be offered at 1 and 3 p.m. All tours are docent led and include sketching, scavenger hunts and a junior art critic game.
Museum admission on Family Day is free for those under 18 years old; all others receive a discounted ticket price of $4. All Family Day activities are free."
