Kids & Family Programs

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. Little Gather events in the summer are a great way for little ones to enjoy a morning of storytelling and performances, which can be followed by a visit to the Museum afterwards. Kids and teens always receive free Museum admission, making these outings affordable for families!
