First Sundays for Families (all ages)

Children and families are invited to explore the collections, create art and share Sundays at the Museum. Enjoy interactive fun to include sketching, painting, storytelling, films, performances and more. There’s no need to make a reservation; just stop by as we explore a new gallery each month. This program is free for children 12 and under.

First Sundays for Families has been generously underwritten by the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, Edouard Foundation, Faye L. and William L. Cowden Charitable Foundation, San Antonio Museum of Art Docents, and Dan and Gloria Oppenheimer Fund and the Frances Margaret Seaver Fund of the San Antonio Area Foundation.

Family Flicks (all ages)

Family Flicks is an outdoor film series in collaboration with Slab Cinema, and held second Saturdays at sundown during the spring and summer months. Films begin promptly at sundown. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and picnics. Please visit the calendar of events for specific film listings and times. During inclement weather, Family Flicks will be cancelled.




Art Crawl (caregivers and babies 0-18 months)

Moms, dads, and caregivers, put your babies in their slings (or strollers) and walk with us through the galleries. Talks are geared towards adults while the art is chosen to engage both you and your infant. Each tour ends with playtime.



Playdates (ages 2 to 4)

Playdates cultivate, nurture, and inspire creativity while developing an appreciation of art and world cultures. Every Wednesday morning from 10 to 11 a.m., children experience stories, gallery activities, hands-on art, movement, and music.
