Family Backpacks

Traditional, adult-oriented galleries are more fun and accessible for families with a UMFA family backpack. Each pack contains hands-on activities designed for families with children ages 4–12, focused on individual art objects and the cultures they represent. Family backpacks provide a more compelling array of hands-on materials and multisensory activities than traditional paper and pencil family guides. The packs may be checked out at the welcome desk, free of charge with Museum admission.

Art Tours for Book Lovers

Designed for existing book groups, Art Tours for Book Lovers is an exciting program that unites visual art and literature. After reading a featured work together, the group can visit the Museum for a docent-guided, discussion-based tour related to that specific work. Tours last approximately one hour. Online discussion guides are available for each featured book. Learn more and book an Art Tours for Book Lovers visit here.

Please use a drop cloth or plastic trash bag to collect chalk powder and pencil shavings. If you forget your drop cloth we have a limited supply, check at the welcome desk.
