Family Funday @ The AK Northland

The snow is coming, which means that there are two trains of thought. A lot of people will head outdoors to enjoy the wintery wonderland. Others will be looking for things to do indoors. For those who have kids, and who want to stick with the indoor activities, the Albright-Knox will be hosting Family Funday on Sunday, January 9, at their Northland location.

The day-long event will be the perfect way to entertain the kids, without spending gobs of money. Along with the money-saving angle, the event schedule is composed of culturally significant, thoughtful, interactive events. It’s kind of like the opposite of Chuck E. Cheese. Family Funday is a great way to stimulate the brain, get the body moving, and learn some interesting tidbits along the way.

On the second Sunday of each month, Pay-What-You-Wish admission to Albright-Knox Northland includes an array of programming for guests of all ages. All events are free with Pay-What-You-Wish admission unless otherwise noted.
