The Icon Museum and Study Center is excited to offer free admission and family-friendly programs on Thursdays during school vacation. Get ready to explore the Museum’s collections, spark creativity, and discover a welcoming learning environment for all ages! Join us for activities in the galleries, auditorium, or outside on the terrace (if the weather is nice).

Each Thursday will feature a new theme inspired by the Museum’s collection or special exhibitions. The Museum will offer free admission all day, with drop-in self-guided tours and crafts available. Docent and Staff-led activities will be scheduled starting at 1:00 pm.

Guided Activity: Join Museum Volunteer, Beth Woodruff, in a guided exploration of Slavic folklore and fairytales. Listen to these fanciful and wonderous tales as you look at our collection’s meticulously painted souvenir Palekh boxes.

Drop-in Activity: Look through our Children’s library of fairytale books and use them as inspiration to illustrate your favorite story using supplies from our Craft Buffet!
