Family Sundays at the Art Museum, St. Louis City



Location: 1 Fine Arts Dr, St. Louis MO 63110

The Art Museum has had these Family Sundays for a while and we finally got to go check it out. They are trying to encourage more families to come visit. I have never taken my kids there because there's absolutely nothing for them to do. They can't touch anything and I think running through there screaming is probably frowned upon! But now that they are older they love crafting so we went to make some crafts.

It's easy to find, it's in the Griggs Gallery which is right off the main hall. They will direct you and you will see this sign.

Everything is free and is open from 1-4 p.m. This time they were making little canvas bags.



 Stop here to find out what the activity is and get your supplies. Then find a seat and get busy!


My kids loved the animal stencils and made a picture on each side of the bag. He chose a turtle and a dragonfly, she chose a butterfly and drew pictures of herself on the back LOL. The bag is sturdy and the perfect size for them to carry their little treasures around. They loved coloring on it and making it their own!

They also offer free guided tours at 2:30 but we had to be somewhere so maybe we'll check that out next time.
