Free Family Day

July 20, Saturday, 11-8 p.m.

Whether you’re a regular visitor to BMAC or you’ve never been here before—especially if you’ve never been here before—Free Family Day is a great opportunity to check out all that’s going on at the Museum. We’re staying open late, and admission is free all day.

From 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. you can watch art being made in real time, make your own artwork, contribute to a community art project, take a guided history tour of the museum/train station, enjoy snacks and live music on the lawn, or just lounge on Land Lift. And of course you’re welcome to view the current exhibits at your own pace, with friendly docents on hand to answer any questions you might have.
