We welcome you and your family to explore all that The Benton has to offer. From the permanent collection and special exhibitions to the outdoor sculpture walk, there is something for everyone at the Museum. Enhance your visit with one of these self-guided activities.

Scavenger Hunt: Explore current exhibitions and practice close looking.

Sketch & Story Set: Stop by the front desk to borrow a hands-on activity pack which includes children’s books related to current exhibitions and sketching materials to use in the gallery or outdoors.

Sculpture Walk: Use your mobile device to explore the campus and see how many works of art you can find.

During the academic year, the Museum offers a monthly open house, First Thursday, which families and community members are welcome to attend.
