Play, learn, explore and enjoy yourself at the SMK all summer! Join us as we invite you to try a range of creative summer activities inside – and relax out in the Museum Gardens, where you will find coffee, ice cream and hopefully plenty of summer sun.
All summer long the SMK has plenty to offer kids and the young at heart, those in search of insight and knowledge – and of course those who simply want to relax in comfort. Sip your coffee under the open sky while cooling your toes in the fountain pool, let your imagination run riot with summer experiments at the Children’s Workshop, and join us for a special SMK Fridays event in the Museum Garden
PLAY with a range of materials at the Children’s Workshop, where bubble wrap, yarn, soap bubbles, crayons, clay, water pistols, cardboard and paint stands ready to be transformed into sculptures inspired by summer, help you express beautiful travel memories, create imaginative artists’ books and make action-packed art.
The museum’s permanent displays offer activities for all the family. Find new and hidden stories in art with the Match-SMK board game, explore the collections with the SMK’s new paper fortune teller guide, or express yourself with paper and pencil in the Drawing Room.
