Visiting with Kids

It’s great for kids to have the opportunity to learn new social skills and a gallery or museum can be a great place to learn and practice. Read these helpful tips and talk to your kids about what to expect before visiting us.

  1. Speak in your quiet voice
    It is important that the whole family keep the volume of their voices low when talking to each other. Speaking loudly in a museum or gallery can make it hard for others to enjoy the space and concentrate on artworks and exhibits on display.
  2. Stay close to your adults
    Make sure family members remain close together and are aware of themselves and their surroundings. Behave politely by not shouting or running around will make it a good experience for everyone.
  3. Look but don't touch
    In a museum or gallery, we are very careful not to touch anything.
  4. Be aware of your surroundings
    If you find a painting or exhibit that you really like and want to have a good look at it, make sure you don’t stand in a way that blocks someone else’s view. Always stand to the side, so that others can enjoy it too.
