mwm @ home

welcome to mwm@home! this is mwm’s location for educational and fun activities and resources that are based on mwm exhibitions, collections, and experiences. these activities are designed to be easy to explore at home with minimal materials and don’t require a museum visit.

there are art making ideas for young people, lesson plans for teachers, digital version of past mwm catalogs, links to videos from past exhibitions, and more. mwm@home celebrates and highlights the ideas, images, research, and stories from our past exhibitions. check back frequently, as mwm continues to add to the opportunities.
