Through interactive games, children will compare shapes, search for surprising details, describe artistic elements, and consider sources of inspiration. A Hot Glass Demo will be included in the visit.

Cost: Free for kids and teens 17 and under. One adult is admitted free with every 10 children. Additional adults are charged regular admission.
