Family Day

SUNDAY, MAY 5, 2019, 10 AM - 6 PM

The Family Day is an invitation to children, teens and parents to spend a fun and art-filled day at the Fondation Beyeler. This year’s programme of events is specially designed around the current exhibition. There are art workshops in the gardens, the museum and the studios, exploring the artist’s works and themes in hands-on activities. Short guided tours offer an informative and fascinating encounter with the originals. Our museum game allows you to experience the exhibition in an entertaining and interactive way.

The Family Day accompanying the exhibition "The Young Picasso – Blue and Rose Periods” is devoted to the theme of Masquerade".

On May 5, the Fondation Beyeler transforms into a family celebration in blue and rose. Inspired by Picasso’s paintings, harlequins, acrobats and artistes from his pictures are brought to life. Visitors young and old can discover more about Picasso’s art via game stations and guided tours of the museum, and explore the artworks and themes of the exhibition in fun, hands-on workshops and by playing a museum game. With additional attractions and tasty snacks in the gardens, the Family Day offers artistic enjoyment for the whole family.

Guided tours, workshops and museum games, as well as admission for children, teens and young adults up to 25 years, are free of charge. Adults pay the regular museum admission.

The Family Day is supported by Dr. Christoph M. Müller and Sibylla M. Müller.
