The Aldrich offers a variety of virtual engagement opportunities for families, inviting peer-to-peer learning and intergenerational exchange. Join us for Virtual Story Time for Little Ones, Virtual Family Tours, Virtual Poetry and Aldrich-at-Home Activities.
The Museum offers the opportunity for families with children of all ages to connect with Aldrich Educators and explore works of art together over live video chat through a variety of programs, offered for free during the Third week of every month in conjunction with our free admission Third Weekends (timed-ticket reservations required).
The Aldrich offers seasonal Creative Kits for purchase to bring the Museum home to young artists and families. Included are a variety of both familiar and unexpected art-making materials, as well as prompts and activities inspired by the Museum's exhibitions to foster creative play, curiosity, and problem-solving.
We offer unique virtual birthday party experiences to celebrate the interests and passions of the birthday child.
We support our local scout troops by hosting scout visits to the Museum, often in support of completing a specific badge or patch.
