Museum Kids Club
Children may join the FREE Museum Kids Club at any time throughout the year. Please register for the program at the Visitor Services Desk in the museum rotunda.
Over the course of two years from the date of registration, members will complete three gallery hunts and attend one event or art class at the museum. Each time an activity is completed the child will receive a stamp on his/her member card. All hunts and stamps are available at the Visitor Services Desk.
Upon completing the membership requirements and earning all four stamps, the child receives his or her very own art kit full of painting and drawing supplies!
Museum Kids Club members also receive a birthday card that can be turned in for a treat at the museum’s Cafe.
About the Gallery Hunts: The three gallery hunts are based on the following themes: Animals in Art, Faces, and Who Knew. The activities highlight the museum’s collection while challenging children to solve puzzles as they hunt for works of art.
About the Events: Along with the three gallery hunts, members are asked to attend at least one family event at the museum, such as Experiencenter exhibition openings or Oktoberfest. Visiting a local festival where the Art Institute has a Museum Kids Club activity also fulfills this requirement. In addition, children may earn their event stamp by enrolling in a studio class.
