Kids & Culture is a free, family-focused event that happens monthly. The Museum provides content twice annually. Months differ each year. Kids & Culture events are held on the 2nd Saturday of each month at various cultural institutions within the City of Mount Pleasant. The programming is focused on bringing cultural opportunities to kids. Each event features hands on activities, free admission, and the opportunity to learn more about featured art, music, dance, and so much more!
