Drop in anytime from 1:00 – 4:00 pm
Every third Saturday of the month, you are invited to spend enlightening afternoons at the Museum. Groups of two, three, four and even more come to LAM for Super Saturdays. Families, neighbors and friends—groups of all kinds—can join us for a tour of the current exhibit and then explore their creative side with an activity in the Center for Creative Learning classrooms. Spend the afternoon or just drop in and experience the arts at a comfortable pace for you and your family. The program is designed to educate families about the current exhibitions and acquaint them with the world of visual art.
