Learn about the exhibitions before you visit
Use our website to explore the exhibitions that might interest your child(ren). A list of current and upcoming exhibitions is available here.
Talk about appropriate museum behavior
Before your visit, remind children not to run inside the Museum, stand on pedestals or artwork, to use a quiet voice and to always stay with an adult. Explain to children that they are not permitted to touch the artwork. This policy is to protect the objects from being damaged and also because our fingers have natural oils that can harm artwork.
What to ask children when looking at art
Children are the best observers and many times see things that adults do not. Ask your children to name colors, describe texture, or list materials that the artist used. Play a game of “seek and find” and ask questions such as What do you see?
