Gallery Night

July 26 from 5 – 9 pm
It’s like a pub crawl, but with art. Shop, eat, listen to music and spend time with friends and family while visiting as many local galleries as you can. There’s no better way to get a feel for Erie’s arts scene. Be sure to check out our website for a list of participating galleries. $3 cover charge at the Museum for non-members and free for members.

Second Sundays: Make Your Own Comic Strip

July 14 from 2 – 4 pm
Get carried up up and away making your own comic strips. It’s a great way to bring out the artist and storyteller in your kid. Oh, and if they or you want to dress up as a superhero that’s totally cool.      

Waffle Miracle

The Museum is open late on Thursdays and Fridays. Stop by after work or before dinner to grab a $2 beer, listen to music, make art or just hang out. FREE parking after 5 pm.
