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: Museum Volunteer, Art Norman, will read The Eleven Thousand Saints, a Puerto Rican legend from 1797, a time when the seas were plagued with pirates.  The story tells of how a community came together to protect one another and their land.

Drop-in Activity: Icons tell stories about people who have done wonderful and miraculous things. Tell the story of a hero using supplies from our Craft Buffet!
