School's Out!

Museum Exploration Week
March 21, 22, 23, 24 / 12:30 - 4 PM

With the kids home for Spring Break, the Norton Museum of Art is happy to perform a public service and help get them out of the house, doing something inspiring, entertaining, and constructive.  From 12:30 to 4 PM from March 21 through March 24, the Museum is presenting a variety of activities for families with kids of all ages. Activities include DIY art-making activities, music performances, art-related storytelling for younger children, and more. And it’s all free!

Each day includes a Mini Book + Art program at 12:30 p.m. This story time highlights a selected book along with an artwork in the Norton’s collection, or special exhibition.  DIY art activities run daily. Drop in any time from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. In the galleries at 1 p.m. and again at 3 p.m., enjoy an “Explorer Hour” and chat with an educator about a work of art.

The Norton Museum of Art offers these activities free of cost!
