Family Programs at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art

When you plan a visit to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville make sure you check out the programs, events, and resources they have that are designed especially for children, teens, and families.


In addition to the drop-in fun and games offered in the museum’s Experience Art Studio, you can also take advantage of guided art-making and drawing sessions with artist-educators. Art-making classes and workshops are held for just for children or for the whole family.

Family Gallery Guides

Free Family Gallery Guides and “Art Tote” kits are available for use by families while exploring our galleries. Pick up a Family Guide and take it along. It asks you to draw things you see and do other creative things while exploring the galleries together.

Family Sunday

All activities are free and no registration is required.
