Before the Visit
Plan Your Family Visit
Short and repetitive visits are more effective and exciting for children. It is more valuable to view and discuss a few art objects rather than trying to see all the art at once.
Shorten the museum visit so your children do not get too tired or bored. Try just 30 minutes to 2 hours at a time. The Museum is free, so come often!
At the Museum
The following activities are available daily.
Browse and explore the Museum with free mobile audio guide tours. Check-out an iPod Touch or connect with your own web-enabled device. The mobile audio guide has a special Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park Tour just for kids!
Guided tours are free and available every day. Tours are offered for the Museum collection and building architecture. Visit the Information Desk or online for times and availability.
Family Gallery Guides
We have several Family Gallery Guides to make the trip more interactive and fun for children. Pick one up in the Bloch Lobby or print one here.
Take a Break!
Take a break from the galleries to have lunch in Rozzelle Court Restaurant, enjoy a picnic outside, run around in the Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park, or sit in the Family Fun Spot and talk about what you’ve seen today.
The Museum Store has a special section for children. Engage their imaginations with puzzles, posters, books, and more.
Swing by the Museum Store and have your child pick out a few of their favorite postcards. Then go on a hunt to find the art objects in the Museum. The postcards are souvenirs of their visit!
