Family Fun at the Jepson Center

Family Days at Telfair Museums are fun, educational, and FREE for City of Savannah and Chatham County residents! We invite our local community to participate in gallery exploration and safe, educational activities designed for the entire family. Play art detective, explore our TechSpace featuring hands-free, interactive artworks, and pick up one of our free art kits to create DIY masterpieces at home.

Each Free Family Weekend will feature a different theme based on the museum’s changing exhibitions. Drop in for a little while or stay longer to explore and take home your kit for art making at home. It’s all free. And it’s always fun.

You’re Invited!

If you’re a local Chatham County resident or student, admission is waived for you to join in the Free Family fun. All you need to do is show proof of residency or enrollment at the front desk.
