Free admission for all!

Ring in the Year of the Dog with a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to celebrate Lunar New Year! Explore Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese traditions while enjoying a variety of music and dance performances throughout the Museum—including lion dances performed by the Gund Kwok Asian Women Lion and Dragon Dance Troupe and Wah Lum Kung Fu and Tai Chi Academy. The New Jersey–based Korean Traditional Arts Academy also performs.

Participate in an interactive demonstration of Saebae, a Korean New Year’s ceremony; go on a tour or talk highlighting works in the Art of Asia galleries, offered in English, American Sign Language, and Mandarin; watch demonstrations of Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese martial arts; and embark on a scavenger hunt in the galleries or drop in on hands-on family art-making activities to create your own masterpieces to take home.
