Calm Mornings are a free program with the purchase of general admission. Museum admission for children ages 17 and under is always free.

We invite visitors to our Calm Mornings program on Saturday, May 25, from 9am to 1pm, inspired by the film Turning Red (2022). ASL interpretation will be provided.

9–10am | Early Gallery Access
Explore the Inventing Worlds and Characters: Animation and Effects galleries in our Stories of Cinema exhibition on Level 3, where sound and lighting adjustments will be made for a more sensory-friendly viewing experience.

10–11am | Family Workshop
Visit the Shirley Temple Education Studio on the museum’s Lower Level for a family workshop inspired by Turning Red (2022).

This workshop is inspired by Turning Red, which tells the story of thirteen-year-old Mei, who discovers that she turns into a giant red panda when she experiences a big emotion. Families can try out voice acting paired with clips that depict Mei’s different strong emotions in our Shirley Temple Education Studio Foley room and sound booth! We will be joined by special guest, Rosalie Chiang, the voice of Meilin Lee in Turning Red!

In addition to the Calm Mornings program, we encourage visitors to attend our accessible, open-caption screening of Turning Red (2022) at 11am in the Ted Mann Theater. The screening is part of our weekly Family Matinees film series. A separate admission ticket is required.

The Shirley Temple Education Studio will remain open during the screening as a space for relaxation and continued art-making until 1pm.
