Art to Go Family Tote Bags

Ready to have a tote-ally good time at the DMA? Check out one of our Art to Go family totes! Art to Go totes are designed to be used ANYWHERE in the Museum. You pick the place; you pick the activities. Spend as much or as little time as you like. The idea is to have fun with the art and with your family. Each bag contains a variety of activities that allow families to WRITE, TALK, PLAY, or MAKE. Art to Go tote bags are available for check-out at the Pop-Up Art Spot every Saturday.

Arturo's Library Totes

Arturo’s Library totes are storytime bags designed just for children ages two to five. With our friendly mascot Arturo as your guide, you can take the tote into the museum galleries and use the contents to explore a single work of art. Each bag includes a picture book, a deck of activity cards, and hands-on activities that encourage children to READ, LOOK, PLAY and LEARN MORE. Arturo's Library totes are available for check-out at the Pop-Up Art Spot on selected Saturdays.
