Create, make, and learn together! In our Family Workshops, families work together to explore STEM and art concepts through a unique family experience. Soder a family stained glass, dissect underwater creatures or create a family board game to play on game nights. Don't miss these monthly one-of-a-kind family workshops, each workshop includes all necessary supplies and materials.

Let's travel back in time to the Italian Renaissance and even Ancient Egypt to explore a popular painting technique from the past--egg tempera! In this family workshop, you will create your very own paints from a variety of ingredients. With your perfected pigments, you will create an egg-cellent work of art. Who will be our next Botticelli or Raphael?

How are squids different from you? Or similar? The answers might surprise you! Celebrate our exhibition Voyage to the Deep and take a deep dive into biology. Learn the ins and outs of squid anatomy in this hands-on, dissection-based workshop. Each family will dissect a real squid specimen! All dissection tools will be provided. Please note that all the animals used for this dissection will be sourced from a reputable, education-based supply house.

Special Agent K.I.D.
June 27 | 1: 00 PM - 2:30 PM, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Families will apply the skills they've developed in our popular Spy Academy gallery to solve a mission that spans the entire DoSeum! You'll search every nook and cranny of the museum in your hunt for clues--all leading to a special surprise. But of course beware of spies, ne'er-do-wells, and double agents. Do you have what it takes to crack the case together?

Additional Family Workshops will be added throughout the year!
