Trails and Grounds open daily sunrise to sunset.
The trails and museum will be closed June 6 – 8 for private events. The North Forest Trail will remain open to the public at these times.
When we promise that Crystal Bridges can be fun for the whole family, we mean the WHOLE family. So let’s give the preschoolers a turn!
Join us for an afternoon of kid-friendly fun as we craft, explore, and play our way through the museum. From a kick-off performance by award-winning guest performers Mömandpöp to making keepsake containers in the studios, we’ve got plenty of kid-friendly creative activities for your growing artist to enjoy. And, with it all being inspired by Julie Alperts’s installation Altars, Keepsakes, Squiggles, and Bows, you know they’ll be learning every step of the way.
Free, no tickets required. Drop in anytime from 11:30 AM to 2 PM.
