Thank you to the Nicholas Endowment for sponsoring our Family Festivals on the first Sunday of each month. Admission to the Family Festivals in the Key Courtyard and to KIdseum, an interactive children’s museum, is free. Regular museum pay admission will apply on Free Family Festival day. The Target Corporation is no longer sponsoring free admission to the museum on the first Sunday of the month.
