Calendar of Events

Open Clay Studio

Come get your hands dirty in the clay studio! Families can explore a variety of clay and experiment with different building techniques. Try your hands at the pottery wheel with fifteen minutes of individual instruction time. There is no charge to play; if you’d like to keep certain projects a $5.00 material, firing, and glazing fee will apply. 

Open Art Studio

Kids and their adults can stop in and get creative! Explore many forms of visual art, paint, sculpt, collage, and more in our fully equipped Art Studio. A new project each week!

Music in Motion

Lots of music and plenty of action take place as little ones clap, hop, tiptoe, run, and scoot thorough a variety of movements! This fun program always ends with some social play time with soft gym equipment, so little ones can learn to follow directions and take turns. 


Use real saws, hammers, and screwdrivers to make your very own invention! ThinkShop is open daily; one adult for every three children is required. Everyone must wear safety goggles! ThinkShop is free with admission or Family Museum membership.

Special Needs Night

Tickets are free and are available at the front desk now. The Family Museum will open its doors after hours for an exclusive event for families with children who have special needs. Tickets will be limited to the first 100 participants. Everyone (including members) need a ticket to enter. Therapy dogs from the Quad Cities Canine Assistance Network will once again stop by for a visit!
