With My Museum Kit, learn more about artworks at Crystal Bridges and create your own works of art! These themed kits come with all the art supplies you need to let your imagination run free. They also include digital resources to meet our educators, look at different works of art, and make your own creations with the supplies in your kit.

Each kit addresses a different theme: Color, Sculpture, You + Me, Art of Kindness, and Show + Tell. Guided by these themes, you’ll be inspired by works in the Crystal Bridges collection and learn about new artmaking techniques and materials.

When you buy a My Museum Kit, your purchase provides another free kit to a child in our community. You may also make a donation without receiving a kit to further support bringing creativity to youth in Northwest Arkansas.

My Museum Kits are best suited for grades K-5, but offer fun for the whole family!
