Every first Sunday of the month, WAM welcomes families for FREE. Before reserving your tickets, please read about timed tickets.
WAM has some great tips on how to experience ART together at the museum. When you’re looking at art with children, ask them:
- What do you see? Do you like it? Why or why not?
- How does the artwork make you feel? Describe your feelings in colors.
- Search for shapes, colors, or animals. How many can you find?
- Visit the 20th century galleries. Can you find art with nothing in it except colors, shapes, lines, textures? That’s called abstract art. Can you draw an abstract artwork?
- Sit near your favorite artwork and draw what you see and feel.
- Read books together in the Remastered Galleries. Or, bring your own favorite book, find a comfy seat, and enjoy. (They have lots of great books in the shop—have a look!)
- Act out stories in the art, or write your own story inspired by an artwork.
- Take a picture with your favorite artwork and send it to us!
- Take a break! Sit on a bench or visit Higgins Education Wing. It is a great place to unwind with kid-friendly activities like drawing, playing games, or having a snack.
- And, remember, you can always come back!
For your convenience: Breastfeeding and bottle feeding are permitted throughout the museum. Baby changing stations are available in the 1st floor and 2nd floor restrooms.
