The Brooks Museum welcomes kids and teens to engage with the visual arts and have fun! Let us help you create an exciting day of fun at the Brooks.
Interactive Family Guides
Free interactive family guides, which include activities for families to complete both in the gallery and later at home, are created in conjunction with special exhibitions as well as for the permanent collection. Inside these guides families will find questions for guided looking, information on artists and artwork, and suggestions for further exploration. Guides are available at the Admissions desk and in the special exhibition galleries.
Community Days at the Brooks
Community Days allow families and friends to experience the museum in a fun, engaging environment. These free events feature art-making activities, events like storytelling in the galleries, musical and dance performances, and family-oriented gallery guides, all designed to engage families with current exhibitions.

NEW in 2020, the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art offers weeklong art camps for children ages 5 through 14, inspiring young minds to explore art and creativity.
