Youth & Family Programs

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 1-2:30 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.

Art Start

The Art Start program introduces preschoolers to the enjoyment of art through stories, songs, and play.

The schedule of Art Start classes through April:

  • APR 8 Plants & Trees
  • APR 22 Pathways & Mazes

Contact Theresa Sedillo at (505) 243-7255 to make a reservation. Each child must be accompanied by an adult. Tours are limited to 8 children and their caregiver. Regular admission fees apply. Art Start is a one hour gallery experience; it does not include art projects.

Family Days

The Museum hosts exhibition-based Family Days several times per year.

These days typically include an art activity and an interactive activity in the exhibition gallery.
