A SUMMER OF FAMILY SUNDAYS AWAIT @ THE BMA

Family Sundays

The BMA is the place to be for free family fun! Every Sunday at 2 PM, enjoy different activities—sketching tours, hands-on workshops, gallery tours, and more—designed just for families.

Look for Henri Matisse’s dog Raoudi (pronounced “rowdy”), the BMA’s guide for family art adventures. This perky schnauzer from the much-loved painting Interior with Dog will be popping up all over the Museum. Wherever you find him, you’ll know that fun for the whole family will soon follow!

WHERE: The Baltimore Museum of Art, 10 Art Museum Drive, Baltimore
