A different kind of art museum

Plan Your Visit

Winter Week December 28–31

Drop in anytime the last week of the year for art-inspired fun at MOWA. Create together with art-making projects and explore the museum with tours and gallery activities. Each day offers something new to see and do!

Start every morning with a different drop in all ages art-making project and stay for an afternoon talk or tour. Then grab a hot chocolate on us during your visit. It’s our way of saying thank you for your support this year.
