Chicago artists transform the museum for kids and their grownups.

Stop and start time. Hide in pictures with Claire Arctander; make pocket puppet-shows with Myra Su; talk to the ancestors with Luis Sahagun; and more.


Family Days are free monthly programs for kids and their grownups. Enjoy free admission while taking part in workshops, open-studio sessions, gallery tours, and performances, all designed and led by Chicago artists.

Join us the second Saturday of every month through the spring, from 11 am–3 pm. This season, join us October 13, November 10, December 8, January 12, February 9, March 9, April 13, and May 11.

Family Days are free monthly programs organized by Grace Needlman, Manager of Youth and Family Programs, and Ellen Chu, Coordinator of Family, Youth, School, and Teacher Programs.


Support for Family Programs is provided in part by the MCA Women's Board Family Education Initiative.
