Bring the whole family to the Taft Museum of Art on select third Sundays to explore, create, and play. These free afternoon programs offer great art, kid-sized art info, hands-on fun, animal encounters, and family-friendly performances. Most activities are ongoing, so drop in when you have time and stay as long as you like. FREE. No reservations required.
Take a trip around the world. Learn about where the art in the Taft comes from and practice your foreign language skills at the Art Cart. Make a paper lantern to take home. At 2 p.m., buckle up for an international trip with Madcap Puppets and their show Jules and Verne’s Excellent Adventure (ideal for ages 5–12). Then, stop by Honey Hill Farm’s traveling petting zoo at 3 p.m.
Halloween is on its way—start the fun at Fabulous Fall Funday! Make a fall decoration to take home, learn about the Taft’s spooky art and friendly ghosts, and become an expert puzzle solver at the Art Cart. Learn about and meet a few bats during a presentation by EchoBats at 1:30 p.m. or 3 p.m.
Join us for a magical day at the Taft. Magician Brett Sears will dazzle the crowds with his up-close magic from 1–2 p.m. and perform amazing feats in an all-new show at 2:30 p.m. While the magician might not be able to share his secrets, you will learn card tricks to wow your friends, make a magical craft to take home, discover the magic of perspective at the Art Cart, and meet rabbits (no need to pull them from a hat!) from Sunrock Farm at 3 p.m.
