Programs for Kids @ Joslyn
We aim for kid-friendly!
Joslyn Art Museum provides children with tools and opportunities to engage in independent art exploration and hands-on learning throughout the year. When you're at the Museum, visit the Scott EdTech Gallery
to pick-up a printed gallery guide, check-out an Art Pack for family fun in the galleries, or stop by the Kids Can, a self-guided activity center located on the Strauss Bridge.
Calling all grown-ups with little ones in tow!
Joslyn introduces docent-guided tours designed for
moms, dads, and caregivers to look at and talk about art with other
adults, while being mindful of young ones in arms and strollers. Gather
in Joslyn's ConAgra Foods Atrium at 9:15am for complimentary pastries
and refreshments. Then head to the galleries for 10am tours that will
keep you up-to-date on Joslyn's permanent collection and exciting
special exhibitions. Tandem Strollers and crying babies welcome!
