Housed in a striking stainless steel and brick building designed by architect Frank Gehry, the Weisman Art Museum provides an educational and family-friendly museum experience.

Family Fun at Weisman Art Museum

Occasionally, the Weisman Art Museum hosts free family activities on Sunday afternoons. These days are an opportunity to introduce kids to thinking and talking about art in a fun, interactive environment. Other family-friendly activities and events include:

  1. Wednesdays with WAM are events that feature and expand upon current exhibits with programs like films, lectures and discussions.
  2. Weekends with the Weisguides. Like Wednesdays, weekends often offer events that expand on the exhibits. They also can include the Weisguides, who offer interactive tours and art-making activities for kids.
  3. Public Tours are offered each Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m.
  4. Educational Resources: The museum often offers educational resources to supplement its exhibits. Some are free online resources. While others are more in depth packages that can be purchased.

Keep in mind that programming at the Weisman tends to follow the university’s schedule. It is always a good idea to check the website for current events.
