THE FAMILY INTERACTIVE GALLERY (FIG) is an interactive, hands-on museum space designed for children of all ages and their families. By offering self-directed exploration, play, and learning together, the FIG provides educational opportunities in many critical areas, including science, technology, art, innovation, problem-solving, early childhood literacy, and social and cross-cultural experiences.
The FIG helps deliver a rare experience in the museum world: world-class art galleries and a family-oriented interactive space under the same roof. The innovative pairing offers opportunities for kids to experience “grown-up” art on their terms – and vice versa. For example, The FIG integrates works of art from the Museum’s permanent collection, as well as mounted birds from the original Museum’s collection.
