Art Sparks
Families will enjoy exploring Art Sparks, the Speed Art Museum’s interactive gallery for all ages. Fifteen hands-on learning stations help adults and children connect with works of art and with each other. We hope that by exploring and engaging with Art Sparks’ dynamic exhibits, visitors of all ages will see art in a whole new way. Art Sparks also includes Planet Preschool, a learning area dedicated to museum visitors aged two to five. More information about Art Sparks.


Free Owsley Sundays
Admission to the Museum is free every Sunday until March 2021, thanks to a generous contribution from Brown-Forman, making it easier to enjoy all the Speed has to offer. Come by for an entire afternoon or make a quick stop between other activities!
