Every year at the museum we pull out all the stops while kids are out of school. This year, we’re creating a special at-home experience for your family to make the most of this unusual post-holiday season!

  • Special Winter Wonder Week editions of our MCM at Home programs: Wintertime and cold-weather activities to keep kids engaged and learning all winter break. See below for our Winter Wonder Weeks Youtube playlist.
  • Winter Wonders Photography Contest for kids 12 and under: Get outside and let your child have some fun with photography this winter. Submit your child’s photos digitally anytime from now until the end of January for a chance to win prizes that will help you make the most of winter and see their work displayed in our art gallery when the museum reopens
  • Old Befana Zoom Show for MCM Members, 12/27, 2 p.m.: Ken Lonnquist, one of our favorite performers, is creating an online version of his popular reinterpretation of the classic legend of Befana, the “Christmas witch.”  He’ll host a free, private performance, just for MCM members. Members should watch their inbox for the registration link.
  • Pick-Your-Own-Time Magic New Year’s Eve Party & CountdownWant to send 2020 packing a little early? On the morning of January 1, we’ll post the video for our New Year’s Eve party, complete with a countdown and spectacular “ball” drop—you decide when you want your family to watch it. James the Magician, another favorite performer, will host, accompanied by special guests
  • Winter Break Craft Kits: Our first batch of holiday craft kits sold out in under three hours! A second kit, with all new craft projects, will be ready for sale with curbside pickup before winter break begins. SOLD OUT.
