Thank you for expressing interest in our programs. Due to current circumstances Family Day is on hold. For more information visit our COVID response page to keep your little one excited about architecture.

The school year is a busy time. We’ve combined all your favorite elements from our design studio, exhibits and Mobile Architecture Lab into a full day of architecture and exploration—just for families! Join us from 10am—2pm on the second Saturday of every month.

The CAC’s monthly Family Day is a new opportunity for families with children ages 3+ to enhance their Center experience. Explore the galleries with us to learn fun facts, find hidden gems and participate in hands-on demonstrations. Use your imagination to build and make a take-home craft project too. Themes and activities change each month.

January: Innovation
February: How Buildings Work
