Flat Stanley Becomes a Friend

March 8, 2013

Flat Stanley has returned for another visit to the DMA, and boy was he excited to learn about our new Friends program. He decided to sign up to discover new ways he could have fun at the Museum.

Flat loves European art, so he was really interested in completing the Grand Tour badge. After visiting the Monet and the ancient gold wreath on the second floor, he walked up to the third floor and found some super cool decorative arts. His final stop was the Reves Collection.

After touring all those wonderful galleries, he went back down to the Friends kiosk. Once he entered all the codes, he received the Grand Tour badge. Hooray!

Have fun like Flat Stanley and sign up to be a Friend during your next visit. And if you see Flat in the galleries, be sure not to accidentally step on him!
