The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) welcomes families and intergenerational audiences to the newly expanded and transformed museum for its first Free Family Day on Sunday, July 24, 2016.

While the museum is always free for visitors 18 and younger, on Free Family Day, it is also free for up to two adults accompanying each visitor 18 and younger. Tickets are available on-site only on July 24, and cannot be purchased in advance.

Free Family Day features the culmination of a month-long exploration of sound and architecture created by artist Chris Kallmyer, including the full orchestration of a new performance, all ages participatory artwork, A Paradise Choir. During this day-long sonic installation at the museum, visitors of all ages can join in mobile choruses and discover site-specific performances throughout the building.
