Walkabout is an exciting celebration of local traditions, national customs and global cultures that showcases the Museum’s international collection of art. Inside the Museum, visitors enjoy live performances by storytellers, artists and musicians that reflect the works on view. Outside, the Valley’s most diverse performers and restaurants present the sights, sounds and smells of several continents.

From hands-on, kid-friendly activities to samples of traditional dishes and a dazzling array of entertainers, Walkabout offers the whole family an amazing cultural experience!
