MLK Day Gallery Games

Monday, January 16, 2017

To help celebrate Martin Luther King Day, Gallery Games will return for families to play together in the galleries. The games are geared towards ages 3 to 12, with a few specifically tailored for 3 to 5-year-olds. They range from simple matching activities for the youngest visitors to word games that provide friendly competition for the entire family. The games were tested on various age groups so they are all “kid approved.”

Some games require only a pencil and paper while more elaborate ones need to be checked out and returned. Playing the games is free with museum admission, which is free for residents of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.

Games include 10 Art Questions, Art Fortune Teller and Apples to Art, similar to the popular Apples to Apples game. The youngest visitors will enjoy taking a board with pictures of animals on it around the galleries to hunt for those animals in artworks. They can also spin a color wheel to find the color landed on in a work of art.
