DESCRIPTION

Discover and play as a family at the Asian Art Museum. On Family Fun Days, our gallery activities, creative art projects and immersive storytelling make art appreciation into a lively, family-friendly event. Themes and projects change regularly, so visit again and again.

On Mar. 19, Apr. 16, and May 7, explore tomb arts from the Han dynasty through the new special exhibition Tomb Treasures: New Discoveries from China’s Han Empire. Learn all about Bianzhong bronze bells and create your very own instrument using everyday objects: construct a soda straw oboe or boba straw pan pipes that can be tuned to the ancient scales of the bronze bells.

Enjoy a special performance, Music for the Afterlife, by Gamelan Encinal and Pet the Tiger, using the bronze bells and custom-built instruments. Performances will be in North Court at 12 and 2 PM.

Please note: Street parking is free on Sundays, making a visit to the museum both fun and affordable.
