Free Family Funday

Every second Sunday of the month is Free Family Funday! 

Join us at the museum for free admission all day, plus a take-home art project for the first 30 children. Video and Written instructions are available below!

Docent touring and art making at the museum are currently on hold due to Covid-19 restrictions BUT you can still engage with the exhibit by creating your own work

We would LOVE to see your projects. Share it with us on social media using #MennelloMuseum

Free Family Day in partnership with City of Orlando’s Family, Parks, and Recreation is created with support from Art Bridges, a foundation dedicated to expanding access to American art in all regions across the nation. Through the “Bridge Ahead” initiative, the foundation has committed $5 million to its partner museums as they face implications of the COVID-19 pandemic.
