April Vacation Week Activities: MFAVisit the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston during April Vacation for a week of fun family activities. This week's theme is 'Signs, Symbols & Stories'.

Search the galleries to learn about hidden meanings behind objects. Join a tour, enjoy performances, and create your own art.

Meet and make art together with other families! Artists have always collaborated for inspiration and to create art. Along with art making, enjoy a dance performance, go on a family art walk, and listen to children’s stories. Enjoy free drop-in activities all week, supported by the Cogan Family Foundation.

All ages and abilities welcome; children must be accompanied by an adult. No registration required. FREE admission for kids all week. (Kids 6 and under always get FREE admission to the MFA, and kids 7 to 17 are free during non-school hours. See Visiting with Kids for more information.)

Children will also have the opportunity to explore the entire Museum, as art-making activities and interactive performances will take children throughout the MFA galleries to discover the hidden meanings and stories behind famous works from a wide-range of cultures and countries during School Vacation Week.

Vacation week activities are FREE with Museum admission. No registration required. All ages and abilities welcome. Children should always be accompanied by an adult.


Free for children 17 and younger with paid adult admission


  • If you are visiting the new Art of the Americas Wing, enter at the Huntington or State Street entrance. Head for the Sharf Visitor Center to pick up a map, get information, or meet a tour. Take a moment to orient yourself and begin your journey through the galleries from the Shapiro Family Courtyard.

  • You can journey through time, from the first millennium BC—the date of the earliest art on Level LG (Lower Ground)—to the 20th century on Level 3, on the top floor.

  • If your time is limited you can enjoy a “broad brush” introduction to the wing by visiting just the central galleries on each floor. Or you can explore an artist, period, or style in greater depth in many other galleries and period rooms.
