NEW! The DesignPhiladelphia KidsFest brings architecture and design to our youngest visitors with fun and creative activities at various locations around the City. #DPKidsFest
Calling all young architects, planners, and builders help us build a gigantic cardboard city at the Barnes! Children and families can stop by anytime to try your hand at designing and building a skyscraper, a park, a row of houses, a school, a factory, the streetscape (or all of those!). Then add your creations to our growing skyline and watch the cardboard city grow.
WAIT. THERE’S MORE! Enjoy the First Sunday Family Day at the Barnes with art making, play, performance, and story time. Make it a day on the Parkway for the whole family!
