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

Family Days are the second Saturday of every month through the spring, from 11 am–3 pm. This season, join us Nov 11, Dec 9, Jan 13, Feb 10, Mar 10, Apr 14, and May 12.


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

Additional generous support is provided by Bai Brands.
