Art Museum - FREE Hands On 2nd Saturday NV Museum of Art - Central RENO

  • Saturday, October 14, 2017

These activities are ideal for kids 12 and under. It takes about 2 hours or less to meander through the museum exhibits, watch the performance/cultural presentation, and complete the art/crafts. Eat before you come, or plan to eat lunch immediately after. The restaurant is delicious, but might not be budget-friendly for kids to eat there.
