Family Day

Family Day



Get creative during the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art’s Family Day event May 4. From noon to 4:30 p.m., explore the art and artists in the Bechtler collection through special art activities, scavenger hunts, family-focused museum tours and more. Drop in anytime during the afternoon.

Art activities will illustrate the methods and materials addressed by Firebird artist Niki de Saint Phalle. Projects are designed for children 5 and older and include the creation of fantastical mosaic animal pins, paper books and whimsical make-and-take totem poles. The museum will also provide sketch pads to children who want to draw their own portrait of the Firebird (as shown above).  

Admission to Family Day is FREE for kids. Adults receive a discounted ticket price of $4. On Family Day, all children's merchandise in the museum store is discounted 10%. Choose from a wonderful selection of art books, contemporary toys and Firebird t-shirts.
