Kids & Family Programs

Think kids and glass don't mix? Think again. Our family programs offer kids the opportunity to experience glass through storytelling, music, crafts, and much more. From experiencing whimsical glass pumpkins to having a blast at our free Family Night, you'll find plenty of kid-approved Museum favorites here. Plus, kids and teens always receive free Museum admission, so Museum outings are always fun and affordable for families.
