Family, Few Hours

10-11 am: Discover 300 years of American art and how artists have portrayed nature over time in Nature’s Nation, located in the Temporary Exhibition Gallery. Be sure to pick up a Family Guide when you first walk in!

11-11:30 am: Check out the Studio (located across Walker Landing) and make some art – fun for all ages!

11:30-12:30 am: Grab lunch at Eleven or snacks from the Coffee Bar and play on Walker Landing.

12:30-1:30 pm: Head up the North Forest for Color Field – you can interact with several of the sculptures, check the labels!

1:30 pm: Head home for naps, or stay on and explore the rest of the permanent art galleries. There are more Color Field artists to be found in the Contemporary Art Gallery.

Sunset: Head to Skyspace: The Way of Color (located on the Art Trail, past the South Lawn) at sunset to watch a light and color show like you’ve never seen, and then make your way back to the museum entrance to sit under Buckyball to witness another magical light show.


If it’s Saturday: Come back at 7 pm for the Forest Concert Series + see Color Field at night! Food and drinks will be available at the food truck.


Didn’t get to see Nature’s Nation or Color Field? Don’t worry! If you purchased an exhibition ticket, you can come back within one month of the purchase date and see the exhibition you missed, free of charge.

Check our calendar to incorporate events into your itinerary, depending on the day you visit!
