About Drop-In Experiences
CAMH’s Drop-In Experiences feature instructions for pop-up activities you can do in-person or at home. Each hands-on activity provides creative opportunities to experience current exhibitions from a distance in a unique and meaningful way. Drop-In Experiences are available in-person between 1–4PM every Saturday at the Museum. For all ages, and always free.
In-person activities are low and no contact and designed with the safety of our visitors, staff, and community (including military and their families) in mind.
Drop-In Experiences are funded in part by Texas Commission for the Arts.
