Kids and Families

Kids and their families have so much to explore at the BMA! Travel to faraway lands, make history come alive, and discover the world of art together in our galleries and family spaces. From family tours and art activities to cultural celebrations on special Family Days, there’s always something new to do. Make plans to visit during one of our many family programs, or stop by anytime for free fun in Bart’s ArtVenture and Bart’s Lair Under the Stairs.
