Heyman Family Programs

Join us for virtual, live programs on select dates in July and August. Check the calendar for more information.

While we can’t welcome you and your family at the Museum, we’ve rounded up some resources and ideas—from art-making activities to books and films—that we hope will spark creativity and fun for your family.

For daily creative prompts, follow @MoMALearning on Twitter or like the MoMA K–12 Teachers Facebook page.

Check out #MuseumfromHome highlights on MoMA Design Store’s Instagram for book readings and activities for kids.
