Information about youth and family programs at the Albuquerque Museum.
The Museum offers several different programs and materials for Youth and Family audiences.
Family Art Workshops
Museum visitors of all ages are invited to join us on Saturdays from 1 p.m.-2:30 p.m. in the Museum School to create a unique work of art based on the Museum's exhibitions.
All supplies are provided.
Family Art Workshops are free with Museum admission and are free to Museum members.
The Albuquerque Museum offers special gallery experiences designed for preschoolers (ages 3-5). The Art Start program introduces preschoolers to the enjoyment of art through stories, songs, and play. The Museum continually offers learning opportunities for students of all ages to enrich knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of its collections and the variety of cultures and ideas they represent.
