MFA Boston: Vacation Week Adventures

Museum of Fine Arts Children's Vacation Activities

Ready, Set, Recycle

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), invites kids for storytelling, family tours and art activities during the Cogan Family Foundation Vacation Week Adventures (April 19–22). From painted landscapes to recycled trash sculptures, artists celebrate our planet in creative and beautiful ways. Create your own recycled art, watch a green performance, go on a family tour, and listen to nature stories. Enjoy free drop-in activities all week.

Highlights of the program include:

  • Art making activities in which children can create their own recycled trash sculptures and landscape paintings inspired by art on view now in our galleries;
  • “Green” musical performances featuring instruments crafted from trash and recycled materials;
  • Daily Story Hour with stories about the natural world;
  • and Family Art Walk guided tours.

These free, family-friendly activities will take place from 10 am to 4 pm each day, and until 8 pm on Wednesday.

All ages and abilities welcome; children must be accompanied by an adult. No registration required. FREE admission for kids all week. (Kids 6 and under always get FREE admission to the MFA, and kids 7 to 17 are free during non-school hours. See Visiting with Kids for more information.)
