Lewis Family Gallery
(Mint Museum Uptown) Kids of all ages can play, explore and learn about the museum collection in the Lewis Family Gallery. This hands-on space provides a creative environment for creating art, engaging in building and puzzle challenges, posing for pictures, creating a giant doodle, and stepping into a Romare Bearden collage! Open during regular museum hours.
(Mint Museum Uptown) Activate your experience in the galleries by using drawing, writing, and hands-on games designed for kids to make connections to the art!
At Mint Museum Uptown, check out ART Packs from the Front Desk and go on an in-depth exploration of a selected artwork in the galleries. Several themes are available. Designed for children 5+ and their adults to use together.
Mint Summer Art Camps allow kids age 3-18 to explore a specific media or topic through fun and creative experiences in an inspiring environment. Professional artist/teachers facilitate age-appropriate art activities in the classrooms and museum galleries.
