Did you know your MAH has a criminal past?
This 3rd Friday is your chance to get to know your Museum and see behind the scenes.
Join us for an evening of tours, workshops, history and art - including the MAH's own past as the City Jail, explored through artist Nada Miljkovic's digital projections.
Don't miss a rare opportunity to handle objects in our collections. Get tips and tricks on hanging art. Be the first to visit our latest exhibitions and get the inside view from curators and artists.
If being creative is more your thing, show us your brush skills in our collaborative mural or try new techniques in workshops led by our exhibiting artists. Experience the exhibitions with your whole body, in participatory performances led by Dandelion Dancetheater.
Come make your mark on the Museum by testing our newest interactive activities or sharing your views with the Director in an Idea Jam workshop.
Bring friends and family for what is sure to be a very special night. And remember, your MAH is full of surprises...
