A museum in Albany figured out how to incorporate art and education to create a day of fun for the whole family.
The Albany Museum of Art used arts and crafts and a scavenger hunt to teach kids about art.
It held its 5th annual Fall Family Day.
For families, its a time to be creative, get out and enjoy Albany and make memories.
"We've been scavenger hunting, playing and then decorating, " said Jordan Anderson, a participant.
Family day has been such a success that the event has grown every year.
More than 500 people came out to enjoy the day all while learning about art.
Chloe Hinton, Director of Enrichment for the museum, says the day is about having fun.
"It's an opportunity for everybody in the community to come out to the museum and do arts and crafts, play games and tour," said Hinton.
Families could join any of the arts and crafts tables, interact with exhibits around the museum and go on a scavenger hunt through out the museum.
The partnership of the museum and Albany Parks and Recreation has helped with new ideas every year, like the scavenger hunt.
Kristin Coso, Special Events Coordinator for Parks and Recreation says that creating an educational experience for kids is simple, make it enjoyable.
"If you make a game out of that, you don't even realize how much your learning while having fun," said Coso.
The day has a fall theme throughout many rooms but the main event for children and parents alike is just getting to spend time with each other.
It is a chance for the art museum to show people that learning about art can be fun.
