Hunter Kids

The Hunter Museum has lots of ways for children to explore the arts.
Children 17 and under FREE everyday!


Art lovers of all ages are invited to Sunday Studio on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 2-4pm for drop-in art making. Geared toward pre-K through middle school artists and their families, each Sunday Studio highlights a work of art from the museum’s collection and features an activity that can be taken home.

Like Sunday Studio but on a larger scale, Family Fun Day showcases youth artists through music and dance and features art making for all led by local organizations. Inspired by the current special exhibition on view at the time, Family Fun Day takes place three times a year on the 2nd Sunday in March, August and October.

Regular admission applies; as always, members and youth 17 and under are free. Adults with a Chattanooga Public Library card also get in free when attending these programs with children.


With a focus on sound, light, and touch, the sensory-friendly map with visitor guidelines and social narrative will assist youth on the Autism Spectrum or with sensory processing disorders in preparing for their visit and navigating the museum.

Kids & families events


Itty bitty artists ages 3-5 are invited to attend a special art making class designed for them and their adventurous adult caregiver! On the last Thursday of the month from 10-11:30am, child and adult duos can squish, build and create at the Hunter. Classes each month will focus on a different artwork in the museum and feature new art activities that explore texture, color, and shape.

Wear your art making clothes and bring a snack and water bottle. All materials will be provided. Admission is for one adult and one child.

Non-Members: $25/adult

Members: $20/adult
