Community Days at the Arts Center

Pay As You Can Sundays

The Sangre de Cristo Arts Center and Buell Children’s Museum offer an unforgettable experience for those who visit.  In order to ensure that every child and family can visit, we offer Pay As You Can basic admission* four times a year.  Visitors on this day are asked to please consider making a donation of admission - at any level - when visiting the Museum. 

Community Days in 2019 are Sunday, February 10, Sunday, June 16, Sunday, August 11, and Sunday, December 15 from 12 - 4 pm. 

I have 3 kids. 7 years old to 3 years old and they all had a blast when we visited yesterday. 2 hours later they still didn't want to leave. The Family Free Day was a great opportunity for us to see what the Arts Center has to offer too. There were tons of volunteers on-hand and I loved that they were very aware of what the kids were doing. They also have a nice little Mother's Room on the second floor for breastfeeding moms!  - Erin F.
