Family Programs

Bring the whole family to the Saint Louis Art Museum for art-inspired fun.

Family Sundays
You’re invited to the Museum every Sunday afternoon for hands-on art activities and a lively 30-minute family tour through the Galleries. Each month’s family activities focus on a different, family-friendly theme. Family Tour leaves at 2:30 pm.

Family Sundays are supported by Wells Fargo Advisors.

Family Sundays Information


Kid Tested, Parent Approved
Knights, mummies, and masks all share the spotlight during July Family Sundays. Each week’s activities will highlight the collections that kids and parents love with tours through galleries and related art activities.

Stop by on July 26 for storytelling and a special visit from Karl the Knight!

There will be no Family Sunday on Sunday, July 5.


Where the Wild Things Are
Catch a tiger by its tail, ride a galloping horse, and spot a primate or two with the Family Sundays crew. Take a family safari through the Museum’s galleries and make your own creative creatures to take home.
