What is there to do?

For an inspiring day surrounded by artwork from all over the world, Birmingham Museum of Art has just what you need!

This Alabama museum features over 17,000 object in its collection, all representing a rich panorama of cultures, from European, American, Asian, African, to Pre-Columbian and Native American.

In fact, the collection of Asian art is considered the finest and most comprehensive in the Southeast!

But it's here that kids can learn that art comes in all forms - not just paintings! There are sculptures to be enjoyed, works of glass, photographs, drawings, and items that were used in everyday life - offering an even deeper insight into history, heritage and cultures of the world.

Also at the Birmingham Museum of Art are changing exhibitions so you can plan your next visit around something new to see and explore!

Don't think that an art museum isn't a place for kids either. The Birmingham Museum of Art LOVE to cater for those younger, creative minds, with plenty of discovery fun with the museum's funky mascot - Bart the Art Bat!

Kids can create art, discover new things, make new memories AND have a ton of fun with the family, so look out for the fun hands-on areas.

A day of creativity, inspiration, imagination, discovery and learning in Alabama's capital - and you never know how kids might just be influenced by the wonderful world of art!

The Art Cave connects the two spaces that make up ArtVenture: the Sonat Gallery–designed for “toddlers and crawlers” and their adult companions−and the Hess Gallery, for children aged 5-12 and their families. Hands-on activities activities at Art Bar are self-guided. Activities change every two months.
