Let's Play Art
Let’s Play Art is the title of the Reykjavík Art Museum’s Family Programme. Children are especially welcome to the museum, with their parents, to look at and experience art through games and interesting discussions. We offer family guidance tailored to the younger audience of exhibitions in all of the museum buildings. There are also workshops for children and their families where they can have fun creating their own art after visiting the exhibition halls.
Let's Play Art is at regular intervals, all year round, and it is easy for families to follow events on the museum’s programme site or sign up for the Reykjavík Art Museum's mailing list here and get information about fun family events and other events organized by the museum. The Museum Family spaces are always open: Idea Lab at Kjarvalsstaðir, Living Room at Hafnarhús and Moment in Ásmundarsafn.
Please note that due to disease prevention and distance restrictions this winter, it is necessary for each family to register through the museum's booking system at the url that accompanies each event. It is expected that 5 families will arrive at a time. If events are cancelled due to the museums is temporally closed because of the pandemics – you can see it here on this page, and the participants already registered will be personally contacted.
The program is free to all with admission ticket to the museum, the holders of Reykjavik Art Museum Annual Pass and Reykjavik City Card; and of course admission is always free for children under the age of 18. Children are expected to be accompanied by adults, and it is good to have looked at the exhibitions beforehand with the children.
