Today’s Highlights

Meet the Cat in the Hat, 11 am-2 pm
Get a high five or a hug, and get your photo taken with Dr. Seuss’s most iconic character!

Tanglewood Marionettes present Cinderella, 1 pm
Set in the eighteenth century and featuring a dozen lavishly costumed marionettes, this production of Cinderella is a Tanglewood Marionettes showpiece. The story unfolds as the pages of a giant book open to reveal each beautifully painted setting – the village square, the rustic kitchen, the magnificent ballroom, plus many more. All your favorite characters are here, from gentle Cinderella to the bumptious stepsisters and the charming Prince, and each marionette is manipulated with precision and grace by our talented puppeteers.  Museum Members Only: Get a backstage tour after the show!

Trace Chinese characters, try on costumes, play gallery games, peek under lift-up panels on the Wall of Symbols to discover the meaning behind Asian motifs, put on a puppet show, and make an art project. Today’s project: Starry Night Swirls, inspired by Van Gogh for All.
