Designed for ages 8 and beyond, the CAM Off the Wall Tour challenges its participants to problem solve, act out, use their imaginations and photograph works in the Museum. A trained guide will lead participants to particular works of art and artifacts, but unlike the standard tour, participants will be assigned an activity at each stop. This is not so much a guided tour as a personal adventure through the Museum. Remember to bring a smart phone or digital camera, and of course, a sense of humor!
Discover the peaceable kingdom that lives within the Museum’s collection on this adventurous tour through the galleries.
This event is free for families. Space is limited; reservations required. Reservations can be made by calling 978-283-0455 x16 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

Children ages 4-6 (and three year olds who are comfortable with the setup) are invited to come and play and learn with us for the next 6 Friday mornings. This class is playful, silly, and all about being a child, or a child pretending to be an animal. Each day, focus on a different one of our senses, and learn about local wild creatures that are really good at using that sense. Play games for using each sense, and imagine what it would be like to have super sense powers. Each day, create something original related to our sense exploration, and take it home.
