Stop by the reception desk in the MMoCA lobby and ask for the MMoCAkids ArtPack, the museum's hands-on discovery kit for exploring art. Designed for family members to use together, the ArtPack contains a variety of activities that promote observation and imaginative thinking about visual art. The kit is designed with flexibility in mind, allowing families to choose which activities to use and what to look at in the galleries. They also include special take-home activities, such as Shadow Play, that relate to current exhibitions.
These fun, interactive hand-outs help children to think imaginatively about what they are seeing while learning about art and artists. Let's look handouts are designed for families to use together and are available free of charge at the entrance to MMoCA's exhibitions. View the Let's look family guides for Death in Venice and Taking Their Place.
MMoCA offers families a variety of resources for exploring its exhibitions. The Learning Centers feature books for children and a full range of activities for various age levels that promote imaginative thinking about the works of art on view.
