Children’s Gallery at the LACMA

Construct | Boone Children’s Gallery

LACMA West | Free | All Ages

In Construct, you, your friends and family will play, build, explore, collaborate, problem-solve, make, dream, imagine, experience, research, design, learn, and create together.

Be your own architect! Work at drafting tables to draw floor plans, build a model using a variety of materials, and display your buildings and designs in the Construct gallery. Or work in creative teams to build cities and structures using wood blocks.

Be inspired by the plans, drawings, and models that architect Renzo Piano developed as he went through the design process for LACMA’s Transformation Project.

Construct has activities appropriate for visitors of all ages—from infants to teens and multi-generational families. On Thursdays the gallery opens at 9 am, before the museum opens to the public. Friday Nights from 6 to 9 pm, activities are designed for teens.
