SPARK! Tours

Due to the uncertainty of these times, we are reevaluating our programs to ensure the safety of our guests.  We will reimagine these programs to meet the needs of our visitors and provide rich cultural experiences and learning for all.  Be sure to check back frequently for updates.

SPARK! is a FREE program for people experiencing mild memory loss (early stage Alzheimer’s or a related dementia), and their family, friends and guests. SPARK! programs feature interactive experiences in a welcoming environment. Trained educators and guides engage participants in lively discussions, art-making, social engagement, and other hands-on multi-sensory activities. Programs spark the minds of participants with conversation, creativity and engagement.
