Summer Break at the Museum

Activities for children

27.6 – 13.8 2023


During the summer break, all kids are welcome to take part in activities at Moderna Museet. We examine our relationship to the weather, art and nature. Discover the museum’s exhibitions and explore color and shape in different materials.

We visit exhibitions and create clouds in the Tour and Workshop programme. In the collection corridor we create our own artworks with inspiration from the exhibition “Pink Sails – Swedish Modernism in the Moderna Museet collection”. In front of the museum, we explore the weather and paint with water.
