The first Saturday of every month, between 12:00 noon and 2:00 pm, the Moses Lake Museum & Art Center sponsors a free family activity or special program.

Free Family Saturday is fun for the whole family and is open to all ages. Activities fill on a first come first served basis and run until supplies have been exhausted.

Funding for Free Family Saturday:

So you know it's fun, and it's always free - but where exactly does funding for Free Family Saturday come from? From puff-balls to presentations and everything in between Free Family Saturday is funded entirely by donations to the museum through our membership program, sponsorships and the annual Rusty Mammoth Art & Collectible sale.
