Exploring Phoenix Art Museum with children can be especially rewarding. It presents an opportunity to share ideas and personal opinions, surprise each other, and discover the world through artists’ eyes. Start your adventure by picking up a Scavenger Hunt at Visitor Services to guide your journey through our collections. There is no need to know all about art – discover it together!  

Make It!


Join us for hands-on activities and create your own work of art inspired by current exhibitions or the Museum’s collection! This free monthly drop-in program for all ages takes place on select Wednesday evenings from 3:30-7:30 pm and select Saturdays from 10 am-2 pm.
