Family Day at the Museum - November, 2021

Family Day at the Museum

Saturday, November 13, 2021 • 11 AM–⁠2 PM (Pacific) • In Person

Fun for the whole family! Join us for Family Day at the Museum and enjoy gallery tours, hands-on activities, & book readings. Appropriate for ages 4-11; all family members welcome!

Using air-dried clay, participants will have the chance to make their own artwork. When the clay dries you can paint it with acrylic or tempera paint at home!

This Family Day will feature activities inspired by the exhibition MIND+MATTER: Five Bay Area Artists with a special focus on artist Richard Shaw. We will read “The Most Magnificent Thing” by Ashley Spires, and learn about how objects we use can help represent who we are through a hands on Make in Clay session led by one of our fabulous teaching artists. 

Participation is free for our neighbors living in the City of Pomona with proof of residency. For all other families, admission is reduced from normal prices to $5 per family of four plus $2 per additional member. Non-Pomona residents may pay at time of arrival. Prices include the entire Family Day experience – admission, gallery tours, and clay class instruction and materials.

Please arrive 10 minutes early for a fun and relaxed check-in process. Late admission not guaranteed. A mask is required for all individuals over the age of five.

Family Day is not for private groups (including Boy and Girl Scouts, or school clubs). If you would like to arrange a group visit, email

Family Days at the Museum are supported, in part, with grants from the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture and the Pasadena Art Alliance. They take place quarterly and provide free or reduced access to resources at the museum, and family-specific activities to support strong families and equitable access to the arts.
