Family Programs

The Museum of Arts and Design offers diverse opportunities for audiences of all ages to explore art and design.

Studio Sunday

Studio Sunday is a hands-on, art-making experience for multigenerational visitors to learn new skills and ideas together in the Museum’s art studio. Taking place on the first Sunday of select months, families are welcome to drop in any time between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. Studio Sundays are led by a Museum Artist-in-Residence, free with museum admission, and open to anyone ages 5 and up.

Stroller Tours

Stroller Tours of MAD exhibitions are especially designed for parents and caregivers accompanied by babies 18 months and younger. Tours take place when the galleries are closed to the public. Led by MAD docents, this experience offers a relaxed and engaging experience for art and design lovers. Free for Dual/Family Members. Join today!

Seasonal Festivals

MAD hosts a Family Festival every spring and fall, to welcome families from NYC and beyond for exhibition-themed, family-friendly activities in the galleries and studios.

MAD is grateful to Material for the Arts for its in-kind support of our Family Programs.
