Cape Ann Museum Kids Off the Wall Tour

Cape Ann Museum has April Vacation programs for kids and families

Designed for ages 8 and beyond, the CAM Off the Wall Tour challenges its participants to problem solve, act out, use their imaginations and photograph works in the Museum. A trained guide will lead participants to particular works of art and artifacts, but unlike the standard tour, participants will be assigned an activity at each stop. This is not so much a guided tour as a personal adventure through the Museum. Remember to bring a smart phone or digital camera, and of course, a sense of humor! 

When: 
Wednesday, April 19 and Thursday, April 20, 2017
