Families @ the M

As the M is expanding, so are its offerings for children and families! Look for artist-led youth workshops in the summer at the M’s new learning space, the Josephine Adele Ford Center for Creativity, and bring the kids for our regularly scheduled Family Days, which offer interactive experiences for kids of all ages. Need a stroller? We have some available to borrow on request.

The M’s Wide Open Studio is available for drop-in making activities anytime you visit, filled with free art supplies and creative projects designed by local artists. Be sure to ask our team at the front desk for the M’s in-gallery Family Guide, and make your visit to the museum even more memorable.

Remember: Visiting the M is free. There’s no need to wait for a special occasion. Families are always welcome!

Family Day: We Are Now

Bring the whole family for an afternoon of hands-on making activities, performance, and storytelling centered on the M’s fall exhibition, History Is Not Here: Art and the Arab Imaginary. Catch a performance by theater artist Ifrah Mansour, learn about Arabic drumming with musician Kahldoun Samman, hear stories by Taous Claire Khazem, try your hand at broadside printmaking with folks from Mizna, and much more!

Family Days are free and offer interactive, artist-driven experiences for kids of all ages, which animate the entire museum through a theme. If you’d like to make a donation, we suggest $5 per family or group.
