Visit the Family Education Center at the Michener Art Museum in Doylestown made especially for students of all ages. The Family Education Center is a space with resources and hands-on interactive objects for children and families focused on our permanent collection and changing exhibitions. There is an excellent collection of books for all ages, many of which are on sale at the museum gift shop. Study how a sculptural mold is made and manipulate puzzles related to works of art. Borrow museum activity sheets to stimulate your thinking as you walk through the galleries. Kids and adults can check out the online Bucks County Artists’ Database with information on hundreds of artists with connections to the region. Use the discovery boxes such as “Look Into a Landscape” and “We All Collect” to explore topics and themes in the collection.
Visit Learn with the Michener to download activities and family guides to use in the galleries, in the classroom, or at thome to make your trip to the Michener more meaningful.
