Explore world cultures and global citizenship

At KID Museum, we offer a variety of programs for children and families that intersect culture and making.

A highlight of our cultural programming is World of Montgomery Festival, held each October. The purpose of the festival is to celebrate the rich diversity of Montgomery County through international music, food, dance, art, and maker-based activities, punctuated by the lively and popular Parade of Cultures. The festival draws 10,000+ attendees annually from across the region.

KID Museum continues the cultural focus throughout the year with monthly Cultural Days, where we partner with embassies and organizations to highlight different countries with hands-on maker activities, performances, and explorations of cultural traditions.
