Use your imagination to create forts, hideouts and community sculptures—all made of cardboard. 

Join us for a day of design and creativity outdoors. We're making cardboard creations with engineering and maker-inspired activities. 

  • Community Fort-Building – Create an organic structure made of newspaper and tape. You'll work collectively with other guests to make an original piece that evolves with each artistic addition. 
  • Build Your Own Fort – Start with a giant cardboard box and everyday materials to construct play spaces—make a secret hideaway, a giant skyscraper or even a cozy picnic spot. 
  • Mini Metropolis – Use your imagination with the help of other guests to design a growing cityscape. Build a city section then add it to a miniature urban planning project. 
  • Saturday, July 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • For all ages.
  • This outdoor event is free to the public. Tickets must be purchased to visit the Museum.
